1964: Marvin Panch pulls ahead of Fred Lorenzen with 25 laps left to win an attrition-filled Wilkes 400 at North Wilkesboro (N.C.) Speedway. Panch led 74 of the 400 laps in the Wood Brothers No. 21 Ford and finished 5.8 seconds ahead of Lorenzen’s Holman-Moody Ford. Darel Dieringer took third place in a Bud Moore Mercury, three laps down. Pole-starter Junior Johnson led 201 laps before retiring with engine failure, making him one of 21 drivers in the 32-car field who did not finish.
