Yarborough won the Daytona 500 four times, his first win coming in 1968 for the Wood Brothers, the second in 1977 for Junior Johnson, and back-to-back wins in 1983 and 1984. In 1984, he became the first driver to qualify for the Daytona 500 with a top speed of more than 200 miles per hour. In the history of the 200-lap, 500-mile race, only one driver has topped Yarborough's record, Richard Petty, who took home seven victories.
