On Lap 7, Tiny Lund (#26) and J.D McDuffie collided together on the backstretch. As multiple cars spun in an attempt to avoid the melee, Terry Link (#66) slammed into the driver's side door of Lund. Link was knocked unconscious, revived by two spectators who had jumped the infield fence to assist him. Lund was tended to by track officials moments later and rushed to the infield care center, where he died as a result of massive chest and internal crush injuries.
