During the Rebel 500 event at Darlington Raceway in South Carolina, drivers
Darrell Waltrip and Richard Petty swap the lead four times in a last-lap battle
before Waltrip finally wins the race.

The race also featured a pit stop mishap in which driver David Pearson,
following a miscommunication with his crew, drove away with only two of
his four tires properly changed. Pearson’s car flipped over and had to be
removed from the race. The embarrassing incident led to Pearson, who
was a top driver, being released from his team, Wood Brothers.
