1985: Jimmy Hensley gets past Tommy Houston with 20 laps left and leads the rest of the way to win the Kroger 200 for the NASCAR Nationwide Series at Indianapolis Raceway Park. Hensley, who posted the third of his nine career wins in the series, was nine seconds ahead of Houston at the finish in the caution-free race. Larry Pearson took third as the first driver one lap down on the .686-mile oval.
