“Tiger” Tom Pistone prevailed in the first of three races for NASCAR’s Convertible Series at Chicago’s Soldier Field (US). Pistone, a Windy City native, took the lead from Curtis Turner with six laps left to secure the first of two career wins in the old ragtop division. Turner, who led the other 194 laps, settled for second place. Bill Lutz came home third, two laps down on the half-mile asphalt track.
