CONCORD, N.C. (AP) - Casey Mears gambled on fuel and won
NASCAR's longest race, the Coca-Cola 600. Mears shunned a late fuel
stop and it paid off in his first career Nextel Cup victory in 156
races.
J.J. Yeley ran second, his best finish of his career. Kyle Petty
finished third for his first top five finish since 1997.
