1950: Tim Flock scores his first victory in NASCAR’s top series, outrunning his brother Bob to prevail at .75-mile Charlotte Speedway. Flock bypasses pole-starter Red Byron in the 48th lap and leads the rest of the 200-lap main event. Flock won 39 times in his 13-year career, which included championships in 1952 and ’55.
