The 1979 NASCAR Winston Cup season was one of NASCAR's most memorable. At the Daytona 500, Cale Yarborough and Donnie Allison crashed in the last lap and got into a nationally televised fist fight on the ground inside the third turn. In the meantime, Richard Petty hustled past them to end a 45-race losing streak -- and delight the crowd. Also in 1979, freshman driver Dale Earnhardt drove like a savvy veteran, winning at Bristol in just his 13th career start. In the chart below, you will find the results for all of the 31 races that comprised the 1979 NASCAR Winston Cup Grand National Series Season.

Number 15 Bobby Allison and #44 Terry Labonte crashed hard on the 91st lap of the July 4 Firecracker 400.
