2Won 14 pole positions in 1980, still a NASCAR Winston/Nextel Cup series record.
3In the 1979 Daytona 500 (the first ever professional stock car race televised in its entirety), he and Donnie Allison were battling for the win in the final laps before colliding on the backstretch on the last lap after Cale attempted to pass. Both wrecked cars ended up on the infield and Cale and Donnie proceeded to climb from their cars and exchange punches, with Bobby Allison joining in. A national TV audience was treated to this, and to this day the broadcast of the 1979 Daytona 500 is credited with creating the first spark of nationwide interest in stock-car racing.
