He lost it briefly to Dale Earnhardt Jr. when he brought his No. 12 Alltel Dodge in for the last pit stop for four tires on lap 364. He regained the lead on lap 367 and easily held off Gordon, who finished second. "'Having a good race car is what it's all about," said Newman. "'The team has always done a good job. but today our luck held and we knew we were headed for a win." Newman did have problems as his power steering went out about halfwa? of the race. "'We had an awesome race car all day." said Gordon. "Unfortunately. we had a poor pit stall and this hurt us. "'We had one set of good tires. but the last set made the car tight. I really don't know what I would have done with him (Ryan Newman) if I had been able to pull alongside." For Bobby Labonte. who fin- ished third, it was his fifth con- secutive top-5 finish. Tony Stewart. who finished fourth had /t strong car and a the leader in the earl3 ging, but during a pit stop his car was over the black line and he was assessed a one-lap penalty by NASCAR.
