September 20 - This day in Petty history

1970 - Richard Petty qualifies 2nd alongside Bobby Isaac, leads more than half the race, and wins his 116th career race in the Mason-Dixon 300 at Dover in the winged Plymouth Superbird.

Dover uploaded a video of about 25 minutes of footage from the 1970 Mason-Dixon 300. Don't adjust your speakers or earbuds - the video has no audio.
