1970: Bobby Isaac survives a race of attrition to post a dominant win in the Nashville 420 at the .596-mile Nashville Speedway at the state fairgrounds. Isaac led 214 of the 420 laps and was two laps ahead of Bobby Allison at the finish. Neil “Soapy” Castles finished third, a whopping 26 laps behind. Only nine of the 36 starters were running at the finish.
