First things first. This day in TMC history - 1990: toomuchcountry marries his bride, not_enough_country. (Two young 'uns - son: toomuchtexting and daughter: toomuchculture - followed later.)
1967 - Richard Petty wins his 70th career race and 5th race in a row during the 1967 season in the Buddy Shuman 250 at Hickory Speedway. Unlike many of Petty's dominating wins that season, he had to work a bit harder for this one. The lead changed hands multiple times during the race before Petty took over to lead the final 27 laps.
