More info on Ray Hendrick winning both halves of first twinbill NASCAR Modified & Late Model Sportsman race in martinsville Speedway history on November 8, 1970. He started on pole in both races. Only driver to start on pole and win both halves of a Martinsville Cardinal 500 or Dogwood 500 weekend.
WSLS-TV in Roanoke, Va. Sports anchor copy after Rapid ray sweeps both halves of the November 1970 Late Model Sportsman and Modified NASCAR Cardinal 500 at Martinsville:
47 years ago today, Ray won his second in a row in the Trenton, NJ NASCAR National Championship Modified Trenton 200 over a field of 59 other drivers!
I never saw Ray run Wilson... would have enjoyed that, Greg.
I can remember his first trip to Wilson County Speedway in NC. He came with "BIG" Al Grinnan after bounty placed on "Farmer John" Matthews.
Associated Press wire report from 1970:
It's Martinsville weekend and Rapid Ray remains the track's all-time winner with 20 victories! R.I.P. "Mr. Modified."
Ken Moeller has a great photo posted on our site of winner Ray Hendrick in the #11 Tant/Mitchel;l coupe passing Tiny Lund in the ninth place #55 Late Model enroute to his August 21, 1966 win in the Trenton 200 Modified Championship.
The first 3 cars finishing were all from Richmond, Virginia and LeeRoy Yarbrough in a second Junie Donlavey Richmond based modified led until he broke a torsion bar in his #91 team car to Richmond's Sonny Hutchins in the #90.
