1955: Tim Flock laps the field to post a dominant wire-to-wire win at the Monroe County Fairgrounds in Rochester, N.Y. Flock was one lap ahead of brother Fonty in a 1-2 finish by Carl Kiekhaefer-owned Chryslers. Bob Welborn finished third, four laps down at the half-mile dirt track. Only nine of the 21 cars were running at the finish.
