Tri-County Speedway

Thursday, August 27, 1970

Grand American race #29 of 1970 was held at the 1/2 mile dirt oval Tri-County Speedway near Cincinnati.

Jim Paschal in his American Performance Center Javelin dominated the event by leading every lap and lapping every car but the one driven by T.C. Hunt. Point leader Tiny Lund was third a lap down. Second in points Wayne Andrews was running third when he and Buck Baker got together and ended up in the wall resulting in a 13th place finish. Baker was able to continue and salvaged a 7th place finish. Richard Childress recorded his second top five in a row on a dirt track with a 4th place finish. There were 6 cautions for 18 laps.

Paschal was on a streak by winning 3 of the last 4 races and his sixth of the year.
