Winston Cup points leader Rusty Wallace added to his growing list of 1998 accomplishments by winning the pole for the Food City 500 at Bristol (Tenn.) Motor Speedway.
It was the first pole of the year for Wallace, who is the only driver on the circuit with five top-five finishes in the first five races and is the only one to complete every possible lap.
Also at Bristol, Dale Earnhardt Jr. was credited with his first career Busch Grand National pole after officials ruled he had edged out Buckshot Jones for the top spot in the Moore’s Snacks 250.
