1974: Cale Yarborough dominates from the pole position, leading 360 laps — including the final 259 — to win the Virginia 500 at Martinsville Speedway. Richard Petty finished second and Bobby Allison third in a 1-2-3 sweep by NASCAR Hall of Famers. Amazingly, Allison never won in 44 starts in NASCAR’s top series at Martinsville, finishing either second or third six times each.
