Alamo 500 - Texas World Speedway

A few years back, I posted a blog about Richard Petty's win in the 1973 Alamo 500.

I found a few more goodies this week from that race in the newspapers from Waco, Corsicana, and Denton TX.

Individual driver promos were a pretty neat advertising gimmick. Never mind that a few of the publicized drivers didn't show to race.

The most interesting one may have been for driver Ed Sczech from San Antonio. He DID race in the Alamo 500 for Don Bierschwale plus 3 other Cup events in 1973. That's it. His whole NASCAR career.
