No. 26 Earns First Bristol Win in May 1965, 26 Days Remain Until NASCAR's Gladiators Attempt to Tame the Last Great Colosseum
In May 1965, Junior Johnson steered the No. 26 to Bristol's Victory Lane for his first career win at the Last Great Colosseum. Edging out Dick Hutcherson and Ned Jarrett, the only other cars still on the lead lap, Johnson ended a string of disappointing Bristol performances that saw the No. 26 lead much of the day but fail to finish better than 22nd.
Tickets still remain to experience the next great triumph inside the Last Great Colosseum. Cost for Saturday's IRWIN Tools Night Race start at just $75 for single-day tickets or $99 for weekend packages.
