No. 60 Survives Close Calls in 1996 Win, Sixty Days Until Racing Returns to the High Banks
Mark Martin piloted his No. 60 Roush-Fenway Ford to victory lane for the second consecutive race in Bristol Motor Speedway's 1996 Goody's Headache Powder 250.
The Batesville, Ark. native survived six cautions, crossing the line a mere three-tenths of a second before runner-up Terry Labonte.
Afterwards, Martin remembered the intensity of battling inside the legendary bullring.
"Close calls?" he said. "Shoot, every inch of this place is a close call."
