nascar racer buddy arrington, 84

Buddy Arrington, a popular NASCAR Cup Series driver during the 1970s, has died. He was 84 years old.

Arrington made 560 Cup Series starts during a 25-year career racing in NASCAR’s top division. The Martinsville, Va., native never won a Cup Series race, but he did post 15 top-five finishes, including a pair of third-place efforts.

Driving primarily his own red-and-blue No. 67 Dodge, Arrington was a Chrysler loyalist throughout his career, but did drive Fords and Chevrolets after Chrysler left the sport late in his career.

Running a limited schedule through most of his career, Arrington ran every race on the Cup Series schedule between 1978 and the end of the 1983 season. He finished seventh in the standings in 1982.

Arrington’s son, Joey, served as his crew chief for many years and was also a successful engine builder.
