During the 1993 Winston Cup season, he drove the No. 24 DuPont Chevrolet and qualified for the Daytona 500. Many questioned whether he would be able to compete in NASCAR because he was one of the youngest competitors, but he defied all expectations by winning his first race at Charlotte Motor Speedway, the longest event in the NASCAR series. In the 1994 Winston Cup season, he finished sixth overall.

Furthermore, in 1995, he won his first NASCAR Winston Cup race, defeating seven-time champion Dale Earnhardt.

The 2012 season began slowly, but he swiftly rose up the race track in the Toyota/Save Mart 350, when he established a new record by completing 23,000 laps. Despite a crash in the Sprint Unlimited to start the 2013 season, he qualified second for the Daytona 500 and led the opening 31 laps of the series.
