This is today's dirt Fayetteville Speedway. I drove our dirt Limited Sportsman car (my avatar) in a 10-lap Late Model Sportsman heat race on this asphalt configuration in 1973 when we were rained out at Wilson County Speedway. Finished last. Never drove again. 😃 It was operating under the name Cumberland County Speedway at the time. A lot of our Richmond drivers came down for big NASCAR LMS evens. I really liked the place except for no retaining wall or guardrails.
1973 Southeastern 500. Second career start for DiGard. Team didn't race at Riverside. DNQ for Daytona 500. Made first start at Richmond with Donnie. Bristol was second start for the team.
Qualified 8th, finished 24th.
Then again, Alex... I was thinking of the old oval Portland Speedway and not the Portland International Raceway road layout, which might be a very interesting venue.
With a background in Marketing, Advertising, Public Relations and Business Administration, I'll certainly have to proclaim my lack of any knowledge of fluid physics, but somehow I wonder if the outcome of the encounters with our Richmond short track concrete wall by Jerry Nadeau and Derrike Cope would have been less severe with SAFER Barrier?
