The best car probably won. But the big story was the winning car was wrecked three minutes before Happy Hour ended and Dale Jarrett's team knew they had a rocket ship sitting in their garage. It was the fastest car on the track all week.
They looked at the car Saturday, took the measurements, weighed the car and decided it was their best chance to win. It was truly a gutsy call. And Jarrett didn't know for sure if his car was OK until two laps into the race.
This team would have been second-guessed forever if that car had not run well. But everyone on that team knew how well that car on blocks in the garage was.
