The 1968 Hickory 250 was a NASCAR Grand National Series (now Sprint Cup Series) event that was held on April 7, 1968 at Hickory Speedway in Hickory, North Carolina.

The winningest driver in NASCAR history (Richard Petty) wins at Hickory on the day that the winningest (at the time) driver in Formula 1 history, James "Jim" Clark, dies in a crash at Hockenheim. Clark had run some NASCAR races, and won the 1965 Indianapolis 500.
