Some fans claim one series or another runs "real race cars." What's everybody else running, fake race cars? :confused:

Ex ARCA, ASA and local bullring crewdog. I remember when racing was really racing and the Talladega Express!!!
Faster than a bullet from a gun
He is faster than everyone
Quicker than the blinking of an eye
Like a flash you could miss him going by
No one knows quite how he does it but it's true they say
He's the master of going faster. -George Harrison
Here's a picture I found online of John Anderson's Draime Engineering Camero from Daytona 1979. This was when NASCAR still ran Camero's etc during Speedweeks. I cannot for the life of me remember the name of that division.
The fans should be the absolute last people considered on any decision that could effect a participant. Doc Austin
Lying was a no-brainer for me. Robin Miller
"I thought they booed [Danica] because she was being a complete jerk, but then they applauded for A.J. Foyt. Now I'm just confused."

ASA cars, at least when I was involved, had to have steel roofs and doors.
Hes found people selling pics lifted off his site at racing shows so hes not a fan of people posting his sites pics all willy- nilly
Bobby Allison in a big block modified. Could be at Flemington NJ. The car parked next to Bobbys car was a regualr there
Schrader raced at Flemington in a dirt mod once too around 1986 or so. It was the night before a Pocono race cuz we used to pass Flemington on the way to Pocono and the sign ot front still said Schrader was gonna be there the night before
I have to get ready to hit the road next week so this will have to wait. The basic concept is that like the cars of the early 80's, I retained the hood, roof, rear decklid and rear bumper cover. There is a ton more detail I can add; these things are more complicated than an open wheel car from a rendering perspective.
Geoff Bodine @ Pocono 1984. Rick Hendricks first season in Winston Cup I beleive
The blurry blue car is Joe Ruttman according to my note on the back of the pic
I cant really say who is the driver in this pic but I added it to show how small the stands at Dover were back when racing was our little secret"
Back when we would be thrilled to see TV trucks behind the main grandstands Wed ask one of the TV people when it would be seen on TV and be thrilled to hear the NASCAR race we were about to see would be shown "sometime next month"
Edited down to 30 or 60 minutes of course. Which meant youd see the first 10 laps, all the crashes maybe the last pass for the lead and then the last ten laps of the race
And we ate it up only because racing on TV was so friggin' rare
Gotta like them 80s blue jeans in the lower left of that shot
