1992: Tommy Houston starts last in the 30-car field and overcomes a record 26 cautions to win the Mountain Dew 300 at Hickory (N.C.) Motor Speedway, marking his last victory in what is now the NASCAR Nationwide Series. Houston, who was three laps down at one point in the race, led 41 of the 300 laps to edge Bobby Labonte by three-tenths of a second. Chuck Bown finished third. Houston raced with a heavy heart, winning on Easter Sunday a day after his father had died.
