During the 1977 NASCAR Winston Cup season, Richard Petty authored a noteworthy all-time NASCAR record. By winning five races in the 1977 campaign, "King Richard" ran his consecutive years of winning at least one race to 18. Petty's achievement was largely overlooked though, probably because Cale Yarborough dominated most of the 1977 season. That year, Yarborough went on to capture his second straight NASCAR championship. In the chart below, you will find the results for all of the 30 races that comprised the 1977 NASCAR Winston Cup Grand National Series Season.

Number 11 Cale Yarborough, leads #1 Donnie Allison, and #88 Darrell Waltrip in the American 500 on Oct. 23, 1977.
