1954: Lee Petty laps the field to notch a rain-shortened win in the only appearance for NASCAR’s top series at Sharon Speedway in Hartford, Ohio. Buck Baker finished second with pole-starter Dick Rathman third in the race, which was stopped 40 laps short of the scheduled 200-lap distance. The half-mile dirt track, which still hosts weekly racing events, is owned by current NASCAR driver and Ohio native Dave Blaney.
