NOTE: in August 1971, Bobby Allison won at Bowman-Gray Stadium in Winston-Salem, NC running a Mustang [Ford],
Allison was not and has not been credited with that victory [is listed as 84 wins not 85], as he ran an ‘unapproved car’.
NASCAR’s weekly media book lists 48 races run in 1971 but only 47 manufacturers counted as winning.
