Isaac earned the 1970 NASCAR Sprint Cup title in a hard-fought season. One of NASCAR’s 50 greatest drivers, he battled current Hall of Famer Bobby Allison for the title, winning by 51 points.

Isaac set and holds the record for most pole positions earned in a season, with 20. He hit that mark in 1969. It’s made more amazing by the fact he tallied 49 poles for his entire career.

Racing from 1964 to '77, when he died of a heart attack in a Late Model Sportsman race at Hickory Motor Speedway, Isaac earned 37 Cup wins. That ranks 19th on the all-time NASCAR list but netted him only $778,052 in purses.

Isaac, a favorite of the late Dale Earnhardt, was one to watch from the start. In his first full season of competition, in 1964, he led every Cup race that he entered.

Isaac clearly was comfortable with speed. He set a then-record for speed with a lap of 201.104 mph in a closed-course test at Talladega Superspeedway in 1970.
