August 23 - This day in Petty history

1968 - Richard Petty earns his 86th race at South Boston, Virginia by winning the pole and leading all but two laps of the 100-mile, 267-lap race.

NASCAR ran 10 Grand National races at the .375 paved mile South Boston track between 1960 and 1971, and Petty won five of them.
