Click here for a blog entry I posted about this race a couple of years ago - including photos of the winning Petty Plymouth and a shot of NASCAR Hall of Fame nominee Wendell Scott enjoying a well-deserved cold Schaefer beer.
Buddy Baker was hired by Petty Enterprises via its contract with Chrysler Corporation. Richard raced Plymouths, and Petty Enterprises fielded a car for Baker - a Dodge - on a part-time schedule. At Trenton, Baker raced for car owner and former driver, Neil Castles.
