It was Martin's fourth victory on the Monster Mile.
On the restart with nine laps remaining, Martin was the race leader, followed by Stewart, Burton, Earnhardt and Riggs -- the only cars on the lead lap.
Rookie Kasey Kahne slammed into the turn 4 wall with 18 laps remaining while running for his first Nextel Cup victory. Kahne was driving the low line when he hit an oil spill and the rear of his car spun around, slid across the track and pounded into the outside wall. The race was red-flagged for a second time to clean the track after Kahne's crash.
