WALLACE WINS NASCAR EVENT

Rusty Wallace emerged from a controversial fender-banging duel with front-runner Darrell Waltrip with one lap to go on Sunday to win The Winston, NASCAR's $800,000 all-star stock car race, at the Charlotte Motor Speedway.

Waltrip was leading in the final 10-lap shootout when Wallace's car tapped him from behind on turn four. Waltrip's car was sent reeling across the track's infield and out of the running for the $200,000 purse.
