The race began on Saturday, May 11, and pole sitter Cale Yarborough and Bobby Allison swapped the lead for about the first 100 laps. Evening rains then began to fall. Because at least half the laps hadn't been run, the race wasn't declared officially complete. As a result, the rest of the race was postponed to Sunday, and the King led about one-third of the remaining laps.

After Cale lost an engine and fell out of the race, Richard went to the front and stayed there. Winner!
