June 18, 1966. A 19-year old kid from Georgia named Buck Simmons showed up for the Saturday night races at Kingsport Speedway and swept all before him, winning the pole position, fast car dash, and the 50-lap feature. He quickly became a fan favorite. Some long-time, local competitors at the track were not necessarily equally enthralled. Buck went on to win 10 races at Kingsport that season.
