1992: Tommy Houston starts last in the 30-car field and overcomes a record 26 cautions to win at Hickory (N.C.) Motor Speedway, marking his last victory in what is now the 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 a day after his father had died.
