Buddy Baker, Cale Yarborough & David Pearson talk about Tiny Lund ... Always the
prankster. Here’s some great bench racing....
Tiny Lund 1963 Daytona 500 Ford Promo Film
Tiny’s Fatal Crash at Talladega
Tiny’s #26 car appears at the end on the back of a wrecker. Notice that the driver’s
side door is caved in. In the action of the video you can see the #26 car hit and
spinning, then hit again in the driver’s door. As a large nearly 300 pound man with
injuries, it was difficult to immediately remove Tiny. He was taken from the car
unconscious to the infield care center where he succumbed to internal bleeding injuries.
It is speculated that the second blow on the driver’s door and the rollbar cage being
pushed in was the fatal blow.
