Pete Hamilton, who was at his best at NASCAR’s superspeedways, died Wednesday. He was 74.

Hamilton won four career Cup races – including consecutive Daytona 500s in 1970 and ’71. He also won twice at Talladega (Ala.) Superspeedway in 1971.

Hamilton’s victory at Daytona in 1970 came in the No. 40 Plymouth Superbird of Petty Enterprises, for which he ran 16 races that season. The other Petty car – No. 43 – was driven by Richard Petty.

“We ran two cars in 1970, and Plymouth helped introduce us to Pete,” Petty said in a statement. “They wanted us to run a second car with him on the bigger tracks. ‘Chief’ (Maurice Petty) led that car and started in the Daytona 500. Pete and ‘Chief’ won the race, and it was a big deal. It was great to have Pete as part of the team. He was a great teammate. We send our prayers to his family.”

Hamilton, born in 1942 in Dedham, Mass., and Maurice Petty made an instant driver-crew chief connection.

Enter TODAY’s Al Roker, who gave us the inside scoop on the stuff that makes him happier, healthier and more productive on the job.

Ever been stuck with too much bottom-shelf booze after a big celebration, wondering what in the world to do with these five gallons of cheap vodka?

Don’t start pouring it down the drain — your cheap vodka is actually a fantastic cleaner. Turns out vodka can be used for many of the same tasks as vinegar, such as degreasing, deodorizing and disinfecting. Green cleaning experts say it’s a great choice for anyone sensitive to smell.

Ask Well: Is Lying Down as Bad for You as Sitting?

Question:

The studies about the deleterious effects of sitting make me wonder if this is strictly related to the sitting posture (knees bent, back straight, feet on floor), or is it the inactivity that’s the culprit? Is lying in bed as bad as sitting and reading?

Chuck Barris, whose game show empire included “The Dating Game,” ”The Newlywed Game” and that infamous factory of cheese, “The Gong Show,” died at 87.

Barris died of natural causes Tuesday afternoon at his home in Palisades, New York, according to publicist Paul Shefrin.

Decades before shows such as “American Idol” and “America’s Got Talent” came along, Barris put everyday people who did not mind exposing their vulnerabilities or answering embarrassing questions before the cameras.

As opioid crisis intensifies, one Md. school system looks at a ‘recovery’ school

Kevin Burnes thinks his school saved his life. He arrived there at 14 years old, just out of rehab, and says it was exactly what he needed: a place where kids with drug and alcohol problems could stay on a path of recovery as they worked toward high school graduation.

“I have no question that it changed the course of everything I was doing,” said Burnes, now a music teacher and musician.

The school that made the difference was Phoenix, in Montgomery County, believed to have been the first of its kind in the country. It opened in 1979 amid concerns about student drug use and continued for decades before fizzling to an end four years ago at a time of flux for alternative programs.

Now the idea may be making a comeback, with school leaders looking into the possibility of a new “recovery” school program as the nation’s opioid epidemic draws wide attention. While some in Montgomery pose questions about cost and effectiveness, others say the program worked well years ago and could help those who struggle with addiction today.
