August 11 - This day in Petty history - part 1

1970 - Richard Petty starts 3rd and buries the competition to win his 112th race in the West Virginia 300 in Ona, WV. The 43 Plymouth won by 8 laps over 2nd place finisher, James Hylton.

Judging by the photo below, I find it interesting how different victory celebrations were then vs. the choreographed way they are in the the modern era.
