1991: Despite leading a race-high 350 laps, Harry Gant fails to win the Tyson Holly Farms 400 at North Wilkesboro Speedway, ending his Cup winning streak at four races. Dale Earnhardt leads the final nine laps -- his only laps as the leader -- to pick up the win by 1.47 seconds over Gant. Morgan Shepherd finishes third. Brake problems hamper Gant at the end of the race, enabling Earnhardt to overtake him and win.
