1955: Pole-starter Tim Flock fends off hard-charging Curtis Turner to win at Hickory (N.C.) Speedway’s .4-mile dirt track, marking his 36th victory in NASCAR’s top division. Flock, who won 18 times in the 39 races he entered in his title-winning ’55 season, led 183 of the 200 laps and wound up seven seconds ahead of runner-up Turner. Lee Petty, who shared the front row with Flock at the start, took third place as the final driver on the lead lap.
