Cup Series Winner Charlie Glotzbach Dies At 82

— Charlie Glotzbach, a pioneer stock car driver and a four-time winner in what is now known as the NASCAR Cup Series, died Friday morning at his Indiana home. While he never ran a full schedule in the premier series, Glotzbach — known affectionately as the Chargin’ Comet or Chargin’ Charlie — ran a career-high 22 of 49 races during the ‘68 season. It was that season that Glotzbach won his first Cup Series race, topping the National 500 at Charlotte in a ’68 Dodge owned by Cotton Owens. However, it was Glotzbach’s final Cup Series win that stands as his most memorable triumph. Outside of NASCAR, Glotzbach was the 1964 ARCA Menards Series rookie-of-the-year and won four times in that series between 1990 and ’92.
