1982: Longtime NASCAR driver Ken Schrader finishes fourth in the Nazareth 100, a scheduled 100-lap USAC Gold Crown Series race at Nazareth (Pa.) Speedway, a one-mile dirt track. The race is called after 54 laps because of rain. Schrader, who has started more than 950 races in NASCAR's top three series, started six USAC races from 1981 to 1983.
