The 1964 Pennsylvania 200 was a NASCAR Grand National Series (now Sprint Cup Series, also formerly known as the Winston Cup Series and the Winston Cup Grand National Series) racing event that took place on July 21, 1964, at the Lincoln Speedway in the American community of New Oxford, Pennsylvania; a dirt track spanning 0.500 miles or 0.805 kilometres per lap; for a grand total of 100.0 miles or 160.9 kilometres of racing action.
There were 21 drivers on the grid; all of them were American-born males. Frank Tanner received the last-place finish due to an oil pressure issue on lap 2 out of the 200 laps that made up the regulation length of the race. There were only two lead changes; David Pearson managed to defeat Richard Petty by 11 seconds in only one hour and twelve minutes. While Pearson achieved a pole position with a speed of 86.289 miles per hour (138.869 km/h), the average speed of the race was only 82.586 miles per hour (132.909 km/h). Bob Welborn would retire from NASCAR after this race; having gone winless since the 1959 Western North Carolina 500.
The race car drivers still had to commute to the races using the same stock cars that competed in a typical weekend's race through a policy of homologation (and under their own power). This policy was in effect until roughly 1975. By 1980, NASCAR had completely stopped tracking the year model of all the vehicles and most teams did not take stock cars to the track under their own power anymore.Timeline
