Today In NASCAR History

1985: Pole-starter Bill Elliott takes command to lead the last 11 laps of the Van Scoy Diamond Mine 500 at Pocono Raceway, marking his 10th victory in NASCAR’s premier series. Elliott was just .2 seconds ahead of runner-up Harry Gant at the end as he continued his hot streak with the sixth win for the No. 9 Ford in the first 13 races. Darrell Waltrip finished third while Geoffrey Bodine — who dominated in leading 154 of 200 laps before a subpar pit stop derailed his hopes — took fourth.
