Four Chasers had mild to major issues at the 1.5-mile track in Joliet, IL. Starting with Dale Jr, who qualified in fourth place, then had to make an engine change due to a mistake in over-revving his engine during his qualifying run. As a result, Dale Jr took the green flag at the back of the field. Although he had a terrible starting position, in typical Junior fashion, he made his way to the front resulting in an 8th-place finish.
