Sundays Daytona 500 failed to fill the bag of excitement 98,600 fans had hoped to witness. A. J. Foyt with Competition watching from behind pit Wall led 167 of the 200 laps. Boring to say the least. And that in t All there was t any competitive racing going on for positions Back in the Field. Richard Petty won the 1964 race Here leading 183 laps but there was an ample amount of lacing behind Petty. For example. Jim Vandiver finished third sunday 15 Miles behind Foyt. Sigh Een laps separated the first to cars Petty won by a Lap but on it four laps separated the first to in 64, Foyt brushed it aside a the Competition was Tough Well until Petty Baker and Allison dropped out Foyt had Competition from Petty until the Randleman drive a sidelined with a broken valve Spring on Lap 80 a the Long Lead was t my fault a a laughed Foyt. A in far. I have never liked a Long Lead. When you re that far in front you have More time to worry about something happening i had just As soon race All Day like Petty and i were going for Foyt s Coly close Call came on Lap 115 when Jim Hurtubise a engine let go in the second turn. At the time he had a two Lap Lead Over Charlie <4ot/.bach a the Oil from his engine splattered in y Windshield blinding me quickly i looked through the Bottom of the Windshield because usually Oil does no to hit there. I found a Small Hole i could see through and made it to the pits Quot said foot. Glotzbach made up enough time on Foyt to get in the same he with the Leader but it did no to last Long. On the restart Foyt quickly put the the Driver a Lap Down. A i was t worried about Charlie making up time i was just worried about getting to the pits it was the fifth win Here at Daytona for the Wood Brothers. Cale Yarborough took the Check ered Flag three times driving a Wood car. Tiny Lund won the �?T63 Daytona 500 in their car and now Foyt. A i knew it was going to be a Day for the independents before 20 laps had been completed a remarked Benny Parsons who finished fourth in a Tira Moil Point Enterprise sports monday Fob. 21, 1972. Page to Mercury. A before the race i did no to figure there were More than five or six cars capable of winning if nothing happened. And then flings started happening. The Way things were Pong at the Start. I even figured i had a Chance to win for Cale Yarborough who finite i sixth in a Ray Fox pre pared Plymouth said it did no to Surprise him. A when you Only have about five competitive cars then you can to expect exciting buddy Baker was unhappy to say the least after the wreck on Lap 20 which sidelined his Dodge. He and Walter Ballard tangled comm out of the fourth turn Baker spun onto the infield grass and Ballard s car flipped several times a i came off the fourth turn and Ballard was Down in the inside Lane he just kept coming up and coming up until he shut me Ballard said a slower car pulled up in front of him.
