1966: David Pearson steers a Cotton Owens-prepared Dodge to win the Sandlapper 200 at Columbia (S.C.) Speedway. Pearson, a five-time winner over his career at the half-mile dirt track, led 33 laps and nipped Richard Petty by a car-length at the finish. Curtis Turner, who led 134 of the 200 laps, faded to a third-place finish as the last car on the lead lap.
