September 15 - This day in Petty history - part 1

1967 - Richard wins from the pole in the Maryland 300 at Beltsville Speedway for his seventh win in a row in 1967.

Petty and third-place starter Bobby Allison swapped the lead frequently for much of the the first two-thirds of the race. With 135 laps to go, however, the 43 Plymouth took the lead again and sailed the rest of the way to the win.
