1962: Pole-starter Ned Jarrett leads all 250 laps to prevail in an attrition-filled race, the first for NASCAR’s top series at Dog Track Speedway in Moyock, N.C. Jarrett won four of the series’ seven races at the facility, which began life as a quarter-mile dirt oval before converting to a third-mile paved track. Jarrett won $775, which translates to $3.10 per lap. Joe Weatherly finished second, one lap off the pace as Curtis Crider claimed third, 10 laps down at the finish. Only six of the 15 starters were running at the end.
