1963 - Richard Petty scores his 23rd career win by winning the pole and leading all but two of the 35 laps on the road course at Bridgehampton, NY. Richard's victory was his first career road course win.
Fred Lorenzen qualified alongside Petty in his #28 Holman & Moody Ford. Also in the field was Lee Petty in a #41 Plymouth rather than his traditional #42. Lee was making only his fourth start since his near-fatal accident at Daytona in February 1961; however, Bridgehampton was his third start in 1963.
