1994: Rusty Wallace wins his second race in a row at Dover, taking the checkered flag .34 seconds ahead of Ernie Irvan in the Budweiser 500. Ken Schrader, Mark Martin and Jeff Gordon round out the top five and are the only other cars on the lead lap. Wallace wins again in the fall, and those three victories turn out to be all his Cup wins in 44 starts at the 1-mile track.
