I've been a little bored lately. I had all the "Stock Car Racing" magazine covers scanned, so I thought I should do something with them.
I think it's every cover. If you know of one I'm missing, please let me know.
Call it my Christmas present to RR.
These are posted for research purposes only.
I realize it's a different world, but in looking at all of these in one place made me wonder if the part of the reason for the demise of the magazine was because they got away in part from what made them successful.
Of the first 31 covers, all but two featured Grand National cars. The two that didn't featured a driver in victory lane of a major GN race (Mario at Daytona and Cale at Darlington). Ironically, of the final 32 editions of the magazine, a Cup car was featured on the cover of only two.
As I said, I realize there was more to it than that - mainly the internet and the speed at which information is passed along. I'm sure many here remember when SCR was one of the main sources for a fan to get details of races, even if that information was months old by the time you read it.
Anyway, hope you enjoy looking at the covers and that maybe they stir up some fond memories.
