LEPAGE HEADS JARRETT IN CRASH-FILLED RACE

Dale Jarrett dominated the Food City 250 before a red flag set up Kevin Lepage to take the lead with less than two laps left and win Friday night's crash- and fire-marred Busch Grand National race at Bristol Motor Speedway.

Jarrett took the lead on lap 115 and was about one-fourth of a lap up on the field when a nine-car wreck and subsequent fire brought out a red flag with less than 10 laps remaining, stopping the race for 26 minutes.

When the race went back to green with four laps left, Lepage was second but surged past Jarrett going down the backstretch on lap 248. Phil Parsons also passed Jarrett before the three took the white flag.

Lepage, Parsons and Jarrett were among the survivors of 10 wrecks that reduced a 43-car starting grid to just 20 competitors.
