June 11, 2011, Sporting News Wire Service,

1989: It's now called Infineon Raceway, but back in the day it was called Sears Point, and on this day, Ricky Rudd wins the first race at the 2.52-mile road course (today it's 1.99 miles). Rusty Wallace finishes second, 1.1 seconds back, and Bill Elliott is third. There have been 22 Cup races at Infineon, and Jeff Gordon has the most wins, five. Four drivers are next with two wins each: Rudd and Wallace, along with Tony Stewart and Ernie Irvan.
