Richard Petty drove his Dodge to a win in a wreck strewn NASCAR Grand National Carolina 500. An asphalt sealer recently applied to the surface of the 1.017 mile North Carolina Motor Speedway led to many of the wrecks, none of which resulted in injury. Overall the yellow flew 11 times for 118 laps. Darrell Waltrip's DiGard Chevy finished 8 seconds behind Petty.
