RACE RESULTS:

With the remnants of Hurricane Erin pushing across Indiana on race
day, it appeared the only winner on Aug. 5, 1995, would be Mother
Nature. But after a four-hour rain delay and a fast race slowed by
only one caution, Dale Earnhardt was crowned 1995 Brickyard 400
champion.

Jeff Gordon returned from his 1994 victory to take the pole at 172.536.
Elliott lead the most laps, with 47, but Earnhardt led only once for 28
laps, and it was the ones that counted at the end.

Rusty Wallace had a commanding lead over second-place Earnhardt
when he pitted on Lap 129, but he got caught behind a pit-lane
accident involving Joe Nemechek and Rich Bickle, allowing
Earnhardt, who had already pitted, to take the lead. Earnhardt would
outrun Wallace to the finish, winning the race by .37 of a second with
a blistering 155.218 race average speed.

Scott Brayton Update
----------------
Indy 500 veteran driver Scott Brayton has recently been released from
the Methodist Hospital following treatment for a concussion and a
broken left ankle sustained while practicing for the Brickyard 400.
Brayton, who drives the Sadler Brothers owned Winston Cup car,
spun in turn one sending him first into the outside wall and then into
the inside guardrail. The crash appears to have been caused by a
tire going down, which knocked Brayton unconscious and caused
severe damage forcing the safety crew to have to cut Brayton from
the car. Thus ending Brayton's and Sadler's effort to run this year's
Brickyard 400 event and leaves Scott with a cast on his leg for
several weeks.

Another popular name has been added toon the entry list for this
weekend's Brickyard 400, and it is that of 1972 Daytona 500 and
four-time Indianapolis 500 champion A.J. Foyt. Foyt finished 30th
in last year's inaugural event.
