Round 35 of the 1964 NASCAR Grand National season sees us at historic Daytona International Speedway on the 4th of July for the running of the Firecracker 400. Watch as speed kings such as Foyt, Goldsmith, Isaac and Petty battle for supremacy on the high banks, cheating the draft and fate itself.
Classic Dirt Race Cars
Here's a walk around of all the cars that competed in this event. These cars are all custom built, the number 42 is my friend's car. These are all classic style dirt race cars... except for the black one on the end, which was set up for street (club).
Fred Lorenzen's 1966 Ford Factory NASCAR Stock Car
This is the real deal. Owned by Jeff Ray. This car is very documented as the car that Fred Lorenzen drove at the 1966 Daytona 500. The engine is the real Holman and Moody Ford 427 NASCAR race engine of the same vintage.
# 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.
