Main Event

In this event more than any other, leading laps don't matter until it's the last one. Fans have been treated to a long list of legendary finishes, with none greater than in 1992. After spinning Dale Earnhardt during the white flag lap, Kyle Petty endured an unexpected challenge from Davey Allison coming off turn 4. Heading to the flag, Petty spun the No. 28 in desperation, but it still wasn't enough as Allison crossed the checkered flag in front -- even though he was headed in the wrong direction. Allison suffered a concussion that day, but he still took home the big prize while setting a record as the only driver to win this exhibition in back-to-back years.
