# 2 -Historic Grand National Stock Cars- AAA Auto Club NASCAR 2-21-2010
More vintage footage of the NASCAR Historic Grand National Stock Cars but
this time they fire-'em up so you can hear them like they were. Nothing
sounds better than a NASCAR engine!!! You have to give this group a slap on
the back to keep these ready to race and remind us of NASCAR's past that
most of us grew up on.

Vintage Racing - 1950s Indy Cars startup and race. LOUD!!!
Chris Ashworth records a series of 1950s Indy Cars at Michigan
International Speedway. This was a vintage racing event that was associated
with the Concours d'elegance of America, where these cars were on display
after this event.
This event was incredible! I got to wander in the pits and the garage area.
You will hear these cars starting up right from the tailpipes, and you will
see them driving on the track from the pits.

Daytona 500, 1960, 2nd Ever Running at the Speedway
This is a film clip taken from a reel-to-reel project that I produced for
an outside family that happened to attend the 2nd ever running of the
Daytona 500 at Daytona International Speedway. The quality is not that
great - but it is in color, which is quite unique for the day and age in
which this footage was shot (the family was wealthy and actually flew their
own plane to Daytona).
Besides watching for the guy picking his nose in the middle of the video,
things to look for are the early days of the original Tower at the
Tri-Oval, the clear view of the backstretch from the main grandstand, the
infield void of the garages, the proximity of the grandstands to the fence,
and of course, the cars.
I'm sure there is a list of the drivers in this race somewhere on the
internet, but I didn't hunt it down. Might be fun to find if you want to
match the few car numbers to the driver name.
The Blue Angels performed prior to the race start too.
This is a very nostalgic look at the early start of Nascar.
DEC 2008 REVISION: To those of you who think this is NOT the Daytona 500,
let me direct your attention to this line up:

of this clip, you will see #22 Fireball Ball Roberts enter the frame at the
#3 starting position. There is no more credible proof than that!
