1965 NASCAR Grand National Results

Before the start of the 1965 NASCAR Grand National season -- in the hopes of evening the playing field, curbing speed, and increasing safety -- new NASCAR rules were put into place that effectively banned the Chrysler Hemi engine from NASCAR events. Chrysler then pulled out of NASCAR, paving the way for a somewhat lackluster, Ford-dominated season. In the chart below, you will find the results of all 55 of the races in the 1965 NASCAR Grand National season.
