Two Daytona 500 winners were also Flemington Speedway feature winners. 1967 Daytona winner Mario Andretti drove a Midget to victory at the 1963 Flemington Fair, and 1963 Daytona 500 winner Tiny Lund won a 200 lap NASCAR Grand American race at Flemington in 1970.


Reigning NASCAR Sprint Cup Champion Kevin Harvick, the 2007 Daytona 500 winner, is one of several 500 winners to have raced at Flemington without visiting its victory lane. At Flemington, Harvick finished twenty-third in 1997 and ninth in 1998, this, in NASCAR's truck series.
