Jimmy Spencer Wins Qualifier Moves Forward to Bud Shootout

8 February 1998

Jimmy Spencer beat Lake Speed, Dale Earnhardt, and Sterling
Marlin in the Bud Shootout Qualifying Race to place his #23
Team Winston No-Bull Ford at the rear of the Bud Shootout
starting field.

Spencer started the race in 13th position, but used the mandatory
pit stop at lap 10 to his advantage, taking the lead away from 
pole sitter Sterling Marlin and leading the field throughout
the rest of the 25 lap race and onto victory lane.

Lake Speed and Dale Earnhardt also managed to pass Marlin late in
the race.
