STATISTICALLY SPEAKING
  • Scheduled for 267 laps; halted at 185 for a midnight curfew.
  • Donnie Allison and Tiny Lund withdrew before the race due to track conditions. The track, at the time of teams' arrivals, was still being built. "They were still blasting rock out of the turns at 5 o'clock", reported Baker in his winner's interview. "They were determined to finish that race track and hold a race, and finally they did."
