May 10, 1975 - 250 Miles - Purse $41,320

Darrell Waltrip would capture his first career NASCAR Grand National victory during the 1975 Music City 420.

  Franklin, Tennessee native Darrell Waltrip would claim his 1st of 84 NASCAR Grand National wins in front of a hometown audience.  He captured the 420 lap event by two laps over second place finisher Benny Parsons. Waltrip would go on to win eight victories at the historic 5/8 mile oval.

Columbia, Tennessee's Coo Coo Marlin would claim a career best third place finish.  He also had third place finishes at the 1972 Lone Star 500 at Texas World Speedway and the 1973 Nashville 420

Alton Jones of Pleasant Grove, Alabama would record a sixth place performance at the event.  This performance would serve to backup his fifth place finish at the 1974 edition of the Nashville 420. Jones was a regular Late Model Sportsman competitor at the track and a Middle Tennessee fan favorite.

Cale Yarborough led 273 laps of the event before being sidelined with engine failure.

Attrition payed a heavy toll at the event as only 12 cars would be running at the end of the race.  It should be noted that no cars were lost to accidents during the event.
