Racing History Minute - September 13, 1959


Stock Car Racing History

From Richmond Times Dispatch - Interesting that the official finishing order has Lee Petty finishing 2nd. The following photo caption and article indicate youngster Dick Petty ran second. Lee won the Buddy Shuman Memorial race two nights earlier in Hickory so Lee's car wasn't wrecked or the driver hurt. Possible Lee qualified and started the race and then turned over the car early to Richard to see what he could do?

Took me a few years to find proof, but yes the Shelby race was postponed by rain from July 26 to July 27.
