When the 1989 NASCAR Winston Cup season arrived, the popularity of NASCAR stock car racing had spiraled upward dramatically. All of the NASCAR Winston Cup events were now televised live and the dynamic heroes behind the wheel became household names.

That year, NASCAR fans watched Rusty Wallace and Dale Earnhardt engage in a hard-fought battle for the Winston Cup championship. At season's end, Wallace squeaked out a narrow 12-point decision to take his first title. In the chart below, you will find the results for all of the 29 races that comprised the 1989 NASCAR Winston Cup Grand National Series Season.

Davey Allison's #28 Ford skidded into the protective dirt embankment at the Feb. 19 Daytona 500.
After Davey Allison was clipped by Geoff Bodine on
the 23rd lap of the Feb. 19 Daytona 500, his #28 Ford
slid into the backstretch infield, then flipped over
when it skidded into the protective dirt embankment.
The Robert Yates pit crew patched the car with reams
of duct tape, and Allison got back into the running.
