Yes - 84 entered & 79 actually took time either in round 1 or 2. Back then, there was a round 1 that locked in the top 20 (standard for all Cup races). Then round 2 locked in the rest of the field & a few provisionals were added to get to the 43 starters.

Amazing to think how far both that event & the sport of Nascar as a whole has declined in recent years. I attended the first several Brickyards & attended day 2 quals in year 1. Just that took like 3 hours. The whole thing was an amazing event to see.
