*The failure of Mark Stahl to qualify for this race allowed Stahl's sponsor, Hooters to move their sponsorship over to polesitter Alan Kulwicki, who was running without a sponsor at that point after Zerex decided to leave the #7 team at the end of 1990. This was the beginning of a relationship with Kulwicki that eventually led to the Winston Cup Championship the next season.

*This was the last NASCAR race in this series not to be televised. It had been slated to air on ABC, but was a two-day race because of rain early in the race. The majority of the race was not televised and results were available only by local news.

*After numerous complaints about the pit road procedure where cars could not pit for tires under caution, NASCAR attempted a new procedure for cautions. When the pits opened, the blue flag waved to permit the odd-numbered cars to pit first. The second lap, the even-numbered cars (based on starting position) would then be able to pit. The blue-sticker cars lined up on the inside, the orange-sticker cars on the outside, and lapped cars to the rear on all restarts. Pit road was open for any cars on green flag situations.

*ESPN moved the finish of the race on tape delay because of numerous rain delays.

*NASCAR changed the pit procedure one final time. The odd/even policy was abandoned. On the first lap of caution, all cars on the lead lap could pit. On the second lap of caution following the opening of pit road, all cars not on the lead lap could pit. The rule was waived if NASCAR called a "quickie caution". A new pit speed limit was implemented, and for the remainder of the 1991 season, cars would be run through pit road for tachometer readings. The pit speed limit was in place for all situations when a car was on pit road. A violation of the speed limit on entrance was subject to a 15-second penalty before the car exited the pit. A violation on exit was subject to a stop-and-go penalty. A violation under caution resulted in being sent to the rear of the field on the ensuing restart.

Winston 500

The Winston 500 was scheduled for May 5 but was delayed until May 6 due to rain at Talladega Superspeedway. Ernie Irvan won the pole. Irvan was also the center of controversy after "the Big One" on lap 71, which took out 20 cars and injured Kyle Petty, who was out until the Southern 500 in September due to a broken leg. Harry Gant won the race on a gas mileage gamble where he out ran Darrell Waltrip and Dale Earnhardt and ran out of gas after taking the checkered flag.*

*During the previous week's The Winston, the #11 Junior Johnson-owned Budweiser Ford was thrown out of the track. Johnson, crew chief Tim Brewer, and substitute driver Tommy Ellis were suspended for 12 weeks for the engine being larger than the legal limit of 358 cubic inches. Regular driver Geoff Bodine was injured in a practice crash for The Winston at Charlotte and was out for two races plus The Winston. All three parties appealed; Johnson and Brewer's suspensions were cut to four races, and Ellis, who drove as a late substitute, had his suspension nullified. Here, Ellis finished the race in 16th, 4 laps down. During the ban, Johnson designated his wife, Flossie as the car owner and changed the number of the car to 97.

*This race is probably best known for a wild crash involving the #17 of Darrell Waltrip and the #75 of Joe Ruttman on lap 119. The two cars hooked together on the backstretch and veered into the grass, jumping over part of the infield road course (both cars got all 4 wheels off the ground when this happened). Waltrip's car landed hard on the left side, dug into the dirt and grass, and barrel rolled while Ruttman's car spun back toward the racing surface.

*When the red flag was thrown for rain, Rusty Wallace's car was nearly out of gas. The red flag was out for over two hours before the track dried and the cars were started again under a yellow condition. However after just running 1 lap under yellow the rain started falling again. Rusty Wallace was VERY close to running out of gas so he was pushed around by Dale Earnhardt so that we wouldn't run out of gas. Once the field was given the white flag Earnhardt backed off. Under NASCAR rules, this is legal unless it is the final scheduled lap of the race.

*The wreck that claimed J. D. McDuffie's life resulted in a nearly 2 hour long red flag to repair the armco barrier and remove the two wrecked race cars.

*McDuffie's crash was just one in a long series of big wrecks in the Loop-Chute area at Watkins Glen in 1991. Before this crash, Tommy Kendall had broken both legs in the IMSA Camel Continental race in June after spinning out at 180 mph and hitting the armco head on. Multiple drivers in the Winston Cup Series and in IROC crashed in Turn 5 during the August race weekend. A bus stop chicane (Inner Loop) was added before the entrance of Turn 5 for the 1992 season to slow cars before the entrance of what is now the Outer Loop.

*This was Harry Gant's 4th consecutive victory, tying the modern-era record for consecutive victories. Gant more or less dominated the race, but crashed on lap 377 in Turn 3. The crash damaged the right front of the #33 Skoal Bandit Oldsmobile. The team repaired the car the best they could (since this was Martinsville, this consisted of removal of sheetmetal that could rub against the right front tire), and sent Gant back out. Gant proceeded to charge up through the field and overtook Brett Bodine for the victory with about 50 laps to go.
