1962: Polesitter Ned Jarrett leads all 250 laps to win an attrition-filled race, the first for NASCAR's top series at Dog Track Speedway in Moyock, N.C. Jarrett won four of the series' seven races at track, which began as a 0.25-mile dirt oval before converting to a 0.33-mile paved track. Jarrett won $775, which translates to $3.10 per lap. Joe Weatherly finished second, one lap off the pace. Curtis Crider was third, 10 laps down. Only six of the 15 starters were running at the end.
