Fred Lorenzen nursed his smoking Ford under the checkered just as the engine blew, winning the NASCAR GN Gwyn Staley Memorial 400 at North Wilkesboro Speedway in North Wilkesboro, North Carolina. Lorenzen's Holman-Moody Ford began smoking with 5 laps to go on the 5/8 mile paved oval. He managed to run the final laps before the engine blew in a big way as he took the flag. Ned Jarrett finished 200 yards behind, also in a Ford. Jarrett started last (30th) after engine woes kept him from qualifying. Fireball Roberts missed the race after destroying his Ford in a qualifying crash.
