A Month of NASCAR, Day 3: 2000 Cracker Barrel 500

I can remember watching this race, sitting on the floor of the living room as Bobby Labonte drew closer and closer to Dale Earnhardt in the closing laps.

But I can clearly remember my heart beating in my chest as the camera on the front of the Interstate Batteries #18 followed the Goodwrench Chevy down the back stretch.

It’s been awhile since there was a finish like this at Atlanta, but this one is a keeper.
