I was flipping through one of my old umi books that covered the 1978 season, and when I got to the Delaware 500, there was a picture showing J.D. on the pole for that race.. He beat out Bobby Allison who was on the outside pole.  Apparently he had used McCreary tires instead of goodyears  and that was the key to winning that pole. Still, that was a huge accomplishment for him at that time.

The spirit that JD and the other independents brought to NASCAR is what is lacking today.
