    Yeah those were the days.
    When men were men and stock cars were actually stock (or at least close).

    I love the short-sleeve shirts and Brooks Brothers slacks "driving suits".

    I doubt it will be around in 50 years. I'm predicting some sort of NASCAR/UFC hybrid where men fight cars.... to the death.

    NASCAR is still cool but that stuff there was man's stuff. You crash those things and you're going to get hurt.

    Sure he would, Petty does. Race cars are always on the cutting edge of performance and competition and sanctioning bodies for better or worse are always trying to make the product appeal to the fans to bring in more money. It's a business and they understand that. And I think he would appreciate the fact the worst injury thus far in 2015 is a broken leg.

    Wow.....Chris Economaki ...!!
    Cannot remember the last time I heard his name....awesome.!
    Parnelli Jones is actually DRIVING a car.!
    Bill Flemming on the mic :)
    Ed 'Fireball' Roberts...would die just a year later from a crash involving a tragic and horrid fire. That crash spurred Nomex suits and fuel cells for race cars.
    Speaking of "Its been a long time".....when was the last time you heard a motorsports announcer describe a bust of speed as....."Pouring On The Coal" .?
    Bobby Johns in car number ..... 7a
    The winning purse was $25,000.00

    great video from better days.Thanks

    I actually visited Darlington SC this spring. Other than the racetrack, it's a pretty bleak place. Apparenty the mayor is on record as saying the Town lives for race weekend.

    This weekend is the weekend for the "spring" race in Bristol. We went yesterday. Attendance is the worst that I have seen in a very long time. The people who make extra income for using their fields and yards for camping and parking are really taking a big hit this year.

    On top of that, the places next to the track that converted to full-time camping have the fewest number of campers that I have ever seen.

    I wonder why the low attendance? Is it because ticket prices are so high now or what?? :confused:

    Ever been to Talladega? ;)

    My sister lives in Johnson City... she says "they" (meaning track and city officials) think it's because of the harsher than normal winter in the NE. The spring race has never quite had the buzz that the night race does but yeah she noticed the shortage of people in the area as well. I guess August might tell the full story.
