Former driver Gene Stokes paid $400 to build this track in a cow pasture on Bethel Road in Sumter (S. C.) County in 1956 and drew quite a field of drivers every Sunday afternoon. There were no seats, no lights and can be seen.....NO WATER TRUCK. Here three-time Sprint Cup champion Cale Yarborough leads a pack of drivers down the front stretch. Second is former Nationwide Series winner, H. C. Pritchard with Earnest Nicks running third. Lucius Keels is the driver of the #7. This was Yarborough's first race car.
