Racing History Minute - October 22, 1961


Stock Car Racing History

The story about Farmer's win, (along with referring to his team mates Bobby and Donnie Allen) refers to the summer season at Bristol International Speedway. Did Bristol run weekly events under the lights back in those days?

August 7, 1955: Lee Petty wins in Winston-Salem


Stock Car Racing History

At last check, the Winston-Salem Journal had 228 comments on their story about the proposed Dixie Classic Fair name change, with almost all of them being against it. The picture of the DC Fairgrounds and race track is great. I sat in the bushes coming off of turn 4 and peered through the fence to see the Jack Kochman "Hell Drivers" there one night, in their new Plymouths. Another year, I saw a motorcycle stunt man named Bob Duffey put on a tremendous show only to have it end with one of his few career crashes, after he had jumped a whole bunch of cars right in front of the grandstand.

Racing History Minute - June 17, 1961


Stock Car Racing History

Very good report! $10,000 was quite a purse for a short track race in 1961. Zervakis got $2,250 for the win, too bad it was the only Yankee 500.

R.I.P. GN Driver Wayne Smith - Advance, NC


-RacersReunion® OUTREACH

I can remember seeing Wayne's #38 Chevrolet setting at what had to be a 1 car garage next to a country store in Farmington, NC (on the other side of I-40 from Advance). And from there, he raced at the top level. Later on, Wayne's Davie Truckers softball team was the North Carolina Class A State Champions.

1970 CAMP DOGWOOD 250


Stock Car Racing History

Maybe Ed had already lost 20 laps due to engine trouble, then blew his engine and crashed on his 34th lap, the leader's 54th lap.
