Yarbrough won the Daytona 500 at Daytona Speedway, the Rebel 400 at Darlington Raceway, the World 600 at Charlotte Motor Speedway, the
Firecracker 400 at Daytona, the Dixie 500 at Atlanta Raceway, the Southern 500 at Darlington and the American 500 at North Carolina Motor Speedway in Rockingham.
He earned $188,605 that season, setting another NASCAR record.
With his victories in the Daytona 500, the World 600 and the Southern 500, Yarbrough was the first to capture NASCAR's "Triple Crown" by
winning the richest, the longest and the oldest NASCAR races in a single season. All told, Yarbrough claimed 14 Grand National (now Winston Cup) victories and 11 pole positions.
Additionally, he won
hundreds of NASCAR Modified and Sportsman races. His career tapered off in the early 1970's, hampered by an illness that later caused his death.
