Richard made the day a clean sweep by winning from the pole. Second place starter Junior Johnson tried to give Richard a run. He repeatedly strong-armed his Holly Farms Chevrolet through Hillsboro's dirt corners.
Ned Jarrett had a good day with a second day finish. I imagine, however, he was mildly frustrated. The P2 was his second in a row at Hillsboro. In May 1960, he finished second to Lee Petty. In September, he was runner-up to Lee's boy.
Richard's father, three-time Grand National champion, and 1960 spring winner at Hillsboro, Lee Petty, settled in second place after Johnson was gone. But with less than 20 laps to go, Lee broke and ended up finishing 11th.
