1974 Southern 500 - Dick May Hard Crash (cracked wall)

#1

Post by nascargavin8 »

Dick May crashed very hard in the 1974 Southern 500 after relieving Elmo Langley and "took a chunk" out of the outside guide rail, then slammed into the inside concrete pit wall and cracked it. I can't find anything on this other than the radio call of the wreck.

Apparently he was taken off in a stretcher and to the hospital.

I managed to find an aftermath photo of May being pulled out of the car. (Source: Charlotte Observer, 9/3/74, via Newspapers.com)
