"Coastal Jack" Walker reported on this 1969 Dogwood 500 wreck by Ray Hendrick with Bugs Stevens for the lead at Martinsville during a "Racing Through History" "Goat Rodeo" broadcast segment on 10/21/2014. Next time we're gonna have a New Englander and a French Canadian sit beside him to assist with pronouncing the names of the 1969 NASCAR Modified drivers!
