1992: Jeff Gordon takes command after Mark Martin retires with battery failure to win the All Pro 300 at Charlotte Motor Speedway, marking his third NASCAR Nationwide Series victory. Gordon, who started from the pole, led 90 of the 200 laps in a Baby Ruth-sponsored Ford owned by Bill Davis. Michael Waltrip finished second while brothers Bobby and Terry Labonte came home third and fourth, respectively.
