I recently came across this in the Winston-Salem Journal while researching and felt it was a very noteworthy piece of,not only racing history, but American history. This race took place at the old Piedmont Park Fairgrounds in Winston-Salem, NC on July 4, 1949.
Has anyone else seen anything like this at that time? It was a shame these racers didn't get in with the NASCAR circuit, but also a tribute to Wendell Scott and few other black drivers that persevered in spite of the racism and did make it in the NASCAR crowd. I wonder if these drivers ever took their racing any further and what ever happened to them?
