Nascar Winston Cup ‘99
I will inform you on all of the highlights that occurred in the NASCAR Winston Cup Series.
In case you have no idea on what NASCAR means it means National Association for Stock
Car Auto Racing. This series is fifty-one years old. That originated from the sandy
beaches of Daytona. This is the longest sport to run in a year and it has the shortest
break in-between seasons. NASCAR consists of thirty-six weeks including two non point
events which are the first really competitive race of the year, which takes getting a pole
position from the year before. Throughout the year, record crowds greeted the competitors
at all twenty-one tracks, and those people who didn’t find tickets fueled the growth in
the television and radio broadcasts of the events. The other non point race is similar
to an all-star break in which all they do is race for the big money.

It was a year of beginnings and endings. The Rookie of the Year was Tony Stewart, with an
unprecedented record setting three wins in a season as a rookie, while Ernie Irvan closed
the book on a driving career due to injuries that almost took his life at Michigan. Joe
Nemechek scored an emotional first-time NASCAR Winston Cup Series Victory at a track that
took his brothers life, and who could ever forget the thrilling, dramatic finishes at
Bristol and Darlington. The year belonged to Dale Jarrett. The forty-three-year-old,
second generation champion had a most memorable season, winning four events to capture the
NASCAR Winston Cup Series championship. Dale Jarrett won his championship in his 22nd
year of NASCAR Competition. Jarrett had to contend with the sport’s young lion throughout
the season, including Bobby Labonte, Ward and younger brother Jeff Burton, and the
aforementioned Tony Stewart, as well as the established veteran, including Dale Earnhardt,
Mark Martin, Rusty Wallace, and Jeff Gordon.

The year begins at Daytona, which is a two and a half mile facility. The two-timed
defending champion at the time won the race with a daring move that took the lead from
Rusty Wallace with only enough laps to go that you could have counted them on your
fingers. That move helped Jeff Gordon with the famous Daytona 500. Winning that race,
Gordon was two point one million dollars more rich. The stunning race finishes that I
previously talked about at Bristol and Darlington were incredible. I will inform you on
why they were stunning. The spring at Bristol was not at dramatic as the one in the fall.
The race in the spring ended up Rusty Wallace defending the first position from Mark
Martin to get his first victory of the season. The fall race was very exciting. Dale
Earnhardt and Terry Labonte, brother of Bobby, were in a last lap duel. They were coming
out of turn two on the last lap when Terry just got around him, Earnhardt nudges Terry,
spins him out and Dale takes the victory. Last little incident started a lot of
controversy. Both of the races at Darlington were won by Jeff Burton but that wasn’t why
they were so thrilling. The reason was both races were shortened from their original
distance because of rain. In the first race at Darlington, Jeff Burton was checking up
(slowing down) for a crash that was in front of him. He didn’t slow down in time and had
