September 10 - This day in Petty history - part 3

1972 - Richard wins the Capital City 500 at Richmond Fairgrounds Speedway to earn his 146th career win. He had to do it the hard way by waging a tough battle with Bobby Allison all day.

And as Petty was leading, Buddy Baker got into the back of the 43. The King's STP Plymouth rode the guardrail for a while, popped off, never lost the lead, and went on to win the race.
