(WAVY) — Ricky Rudd, NASCAR’s original Iron Man, has been named a finalist for the NASCAR Hall of Fame. In this edition of the Sportswrap Vault, we go back to 1984 when Rudd took the checkered flag at Richmond.
What made the win so remarkable was the week prior, Rudd was injured in a spectacular crash at Daytona. Rudd’s face was still swollen following the Daytona crash and he used tape to keep eyes open.
This race recap features highlights and a one-on-one interview with Bruce Rader and Rudd in victory lane.
