Bowman Gray was a staple track on the Grand National circuit from the late 1950s until the schedule was restructured as the Winston Cup Grand National Series in 1971. Petty had pretty good success at the track with four wins and 20 top 5's in 26 total starts.
In March 2011, NASCAR.com published an article about Bowman Gray under its Hometracks section - including a photo from the 1962 race of Petty leading Larry Thomas. The article gets a +1 bump for being written by Paul Schaefer.
