That would be Cale Yarborough and Donnie Allison. You see, that wreck at the Daytona International SPEEDWAY would be a very important race for NASCAR, not because of the race, but for the FIGHT that occured afterwards.

Donnie Allison was leading the race on the final lap with Yarborough drafting him tightly. As Yarborough attempted a slingshot pass at the end of the backstretch, Allison attempted to block him. Yarborough refused to give ground and as he pulled alongside Allison, his left side tires left the pavement and went into the wet and muddy infield grass. Yarborough lost control of his car and contacted Allison's car halfway down the backstretch. As both drivers tried to regain control, their cars made contact three more times before locking together and crashing into the outside wall in turn three. After the cars settled in the infield grass (short of the finish line), Donnie Allison and Yarborough began to argue. After they stopped arguing, Bobby Allison, who was one lap down at that point, stopped, and a fight broke out. Richard Petty, who was over half a lap behind before the incident, went on to win.[2] With the brawl in the infield, the television audience was shown seconds of Petty's win. The story made the front page of The New York Times Sports section. NASCAR had arrived as a national sport, and began to expand from its Southeastern United States base and become a national sport, shedding its moonshine running roots along the way.
