1956: Curtis Turner edges teammate Joe Weatherly for a Convertible Series victory in the first NASCAR race held at McCormick Field, currently the home of the Asheville (N.C.) Tourists minor-league baseball team. Turner and pole-starter Weatherly ran 1-2 in Pete DePaolo-owned ’56 Fords in the 150-lap race on the quarter-mile asphalt track. Bill Lutz finished third, one lap down. Only 10 of the 17 starters were running at the finish.
