Today In NASCAR History

June 13, 2012


1954: Al Keller makes history in the first road-course event in NASCAR’s top series, notching the only win for Jaguar at the Linden, N.J., airport. Keller, whose only other win came in a Hudson, led 28 of 50 laps on the 2-mile runway layout. Joe Eubanks was second in a Hudson while pole-starter Buck Baker was third, one lap down. Keller’s car was one of 13 Jaguars in the 43-car field, which also featured MGs, an Austin Healey and a Porsche.
