Thursday, July 7, 1966 – Elmo Langley returned to the winner’s circle for the second time in approximately one month when he captured the Old Dominion 150 at Old Dominion Speedway in Manassas, Va. Langley, a native of Landover, Md., was seven laps ahead of runner-up John Sears in his No. 64 Ford. James Hylton finished third in the NASCAR premier series event.
• Langley had scored his first victory in June at Spartanburg, S.C.
• Only 11 of the 24 starters were running at the finish of the 400-lap race.
• Bobby Allison won the pole, his first in NASCAR’s top series. He led 49 laps before being sidelined due to transmission issues.
• Tiny Lund led 120 laps but was felled by a blown engine.
• Langley went on to work as crew chief for team owner/driver Cale Yarborough, then became an official with NASCAR, driving the pace car in each premier series event.
