Lee Petty dismounted his car in disgust on the 32nd lap, climbed the flagstand, grabbed the red flag from the official starter, and waved the scheduled 100-mile NASCAR Grand National race at Tulsa, Oklahoma, US to a halt. Dusty conditions blinded the drivers and Petty acted on his own to prevent a catastrophe. The race was never completed or rescheduled.
