Pace lap - getting ready for the green. Fast Freddy Lorenzen was on the pole the #99 STP Plymouth. Petty started on the outside of the front row. Bobby Isaac's #71 Dodge Charger was on the inside of the second row with Dave Marcis in a 1970 #2 blue Dodge.
It was an unusually dull show for this grueling track - reads as out of step with today's NASCAR who seemingly has low self-esteem and continually bullies drivers and media over any comment remotely critical of the sport.
