1987: Canadian Larry Pollard prevails in the Busch 200 at Langley Speedway in Hampton, Va., becoming the first foreign-born winner in NASCAR’s Nationwide Series. Pollard took over from pole-starter Larry Pearson in the 155th lap and led the rest of the 200-lap feature. Robert Ingram finished second, 3.6 seconds back on the .395-mile track, with Elton Sawyer third. Pollard, who made 98 starts over six Nationwide seasons, remains the only foreign-born winner in the series on an oval track.
