The Original Truck Series

The original truck series began long before NASCAR's current Camping World Truck Series. Picture it: Riverside, California, 1983 (OK, I promise that is my last “Golden Girls” or any other pop-culture reference in this article)

June 5, 1983, is an important date in NASCAR history because it is the day that Ricky Rudd wheeled the Richard Childress Racing #3 Piedmont Airlines Chevrolet to victory lane for his first Winston Cup Series victory as a driver and Richard Childress’s first as a car owner. It was a rare top-5 on a road course for Harry Gant, and Dick Brooks got the penultimate top-5 of his career.
