Saturday, July 13, 1963 – Glen Wood, founder of the legendary Stuart, Va.-based Wood Brothers Racing organization, earned his fourth career victory in the NASCAR premier series when he triumphed at Bowman-Gray Stadium, beating Ned Jarrett in the 200-lap event. It was also Wood’s fourth win at Bowman-Gray.
• Buck Baker, Lee Petty and Jack Smith completed the top five. All finished a lap or more down to the winner.
• After starting on the pole, Wood fell to 14th following a spin on the second lap of the race. Junior Johnson inherited the lead and remained in front until lap 80 when his No. 3 Chevrolet suffered a flat tire.
• Wood ended a nearly two-year hiatus with his return to competition at Bowman Gray. Now a NASCAR Hall of Fame member, Wood did not compete in 1962 after running only six races the previous season.
• According to records, Wood led every lap in each of his Bowman Gray victories, except for the final one in which he led 95 laps.
• Wood made two starts in 1964 before ending his driving career.
• The event was the annual Myers Brothers Memorial race named in honor of former racers Bobby and Billy Myers.
