WALLACE WINS SPLITFIRE 500

With his Ford Thunderbird out of gas and a tire flattened, Rusty Wallace barely held off Dale Earnhardt to win the SplitFire 500.

Wallace's car limped around the one-mile Dover Dover Downs International Speedway as the race finished under a caution flag.Wallace was lucky he was able to keep the car moving - Earnhardt would have won had it stopped at any time on the final lap.
