One Hot Night

The most legendary of all the NASCAR all-star races happened for the first time at night in 1992. It was billed as “One Hot Night” and the 1992 edition of The Winston certainly lived up to its billing, deemed an overwhelming success by NASCAR and its fans.

Televised on TNN, some of the legends of the sport all raced together for one night under the lights in Charlotte. Waltrip, Kulwicki, Petty, and Allison all competed for the win and a big paycheck at the end of the race. It would end up being a battle between Kyle Petty and Davey Allison for the win. Of course, history will reflect on this race for more than the finish (and the crash at the end of it all), but also on the history made in the night race, and how it would contribute to NASCAR’s future.
