From dominance, to disbelief, to heartache in a matter of seconds.
That was Dale Jarrett's day at the 1998 Brickyard 400.

Ernie Irvan took the race pole for the second-consecutive year,
setting a track record in the No. 36 Skittles Pontiac at 179.394 mph.

With a clearly dominant car in the race, Jarrett was leading by
several seconds when he ran out of gas on the backstretch on Lap
80, the halfway point of the race.

The car coasted around to the pit entrance where members of his
pit crew and that of his Robert Yates Racing teammate, Kenny Irwin
Jr., hurriedly pushed the car to his pit stall.

Jarrett was away on Lap 84, but four laps down.

Jeff Gordon arguably had the second-fastest car of the day, and he
would lead a total of 97 laps. He took the lead from Dale Earnhardt
between Turns 1 and 2 on Lap 127 and never relinquished it,
winning his second B! rickyard 400 under caution and earning a $1
million No Bull Five bonus from Winston. He also became the first
two-time winner of the event.

The race also saw an event-record number of caution flags: nine
cautions for 34 laps.

Further demonstrating the dominance of his car that day, Jarrett
came back to finish on the lead lap, in 16th place.
