Cale Yarborough & David Pearson had been battling each other for years on the track. They knew the other’s driving style well. They were battling one time for the lead. Track wasn’t mentioned.
Cale was leading but was slower than Pearson. Pearson gave Cale the chrome horn. Cale didn’t budge from his spot in front of David. Again, the Silver Fox bumped Cale. Still, Cale wouldn’t give up the position.
Cale shook his fist at David & Pearson knew that meant Cale would get him back for the bumps. Pearson went ahead & spun Cale out and took the position.
After the race, Pearson sees Cale eating a Cherry Pie a fan had given him.
Cale walks up to David and asked “why did ya spin me out?”
David responded “Cale you know why I did. I warned you a couple of times. You refused to give. I knew when you shook that fist that you were gonna retaliate.”
