other driver is waiting for revenge on the next lap. Burt gets shoved into
the wall in a serious way and the crews want a fight. Ahhhh good ole Bowman
Gray :) Check it out!

Pontiac Wins Daytona Grand National Race 1957
The Daytona Beach Road Course was a race track that was instrumental in the
formation of the National Association for Stock Car Auto Racing, or NASCAR.
It originally became famous as the location where fifteen world land speed
records were set.
The course started on the pavement of highway A1A (at 4511 South Atlantic
Avenue, Ponce Inlet 29.108890°N 80.943669°W). A restaurant named
"Racing's North Turn" now stands at that location. It went south two miles
(3 km) parallel to the ocean on A1A (S. Atlantic Ave) to the end of the
road, where the drivers accessed the beach at the south turn at the Beach
Street approach 29.084705°N 80.925566°W, returned two miles (3 km) north
on the sandy beach surface, and returned to A1A at the north turn. The
lap length in early events was 3.2 miles (5.1 km), and it was lengthened to
4.2 miles (6.8 km) in the late 1940s. In the video game NASCAR Thunder 2004
by EA Sports, the course is shortened to about half its distance, but still
shows how the basic course was set up.
in 1957 the three-race weekend was revised with new preliminary formats.
The first race is a 125-mile (201 km) Modifield/Sportsmen race, and the
second is a 160-mile (260 km) Late Model Convertible event. Tim Flock and
Curtis Turner are the victors.
In the main event, Cotton Owens moved from his third place starting
position to lead the first lap. Paul Goldsmith took the lead briefly after
40 miles (of 160 miles). Goldsmith took the lead back from Owens after
Owens pitted after 94 miles (151 km). Goldsmith's quick pit stop gave him a
lead that he maintained until he went out with a blown piston with 36 miles
(58 km) left in the race. Owens led the rest of the way for his first
career win. The win was the first NASCAR win for Pontiac, and the first
Grand National race speed average over 100 mph (101.541 mph).
This film concentrates on the main event. Starting with scenes of the
NASCAR Inspection Station show the cars of Goldsmith, Tiny Lund, Billy
Myers, Marvin Panch and Curtis Turner. Ray Nichels, the car builder who
helped bring Pontiac into NASCAR, is shown at his Speedweek headquarters at
the Stephens Pontiac garage in Daytona, where both of his red '57 Pontiacs
are being prepared for drivers Banjo Matthews and Cotton Owens.
This film takes to the beach for qualifying and Goldsmith, Turner, Darel
Dieringer, plus the Nichels Pontiacs of Cotton Owens and Banjo Matthews are
all shown in action. Banjo wins the pole and starting beside him is Jack
Smith. Owens starts third with Fonty Flock in the #18 Bill Stroppe Mercury
fourth, while Tiny Lund starts fifth with Dieringer alongside.
By the end of the first lap Owens has taken the lead, with Paul Goldsmith,
who starts in 18th position in Smokey's #3 black '57 Chevy, moving up fast.
The first car out of the race is Bob Duell, shown running up the bank in
the south turn! Goldsmith takes the lead from Owens briefly at the 40-mile
mark, but Owens is back in front the next time around! Goldsmith takes
first again when Owens makes his only pit stop after 94 miles. Cotton gets
back out in a little over a minute to try and chase down Goldsmith, who
must soon come in, himself. Great camera work shows the pit stops of top
contenders Goldsmith, Owens and Flock, with car builders Nichels, Yunick
and Bill Stroppe all in action! Goldsmith's stop is quicker than Owens',
and he keeps the lead in the late stages of the race. Meanwhile other
drivers are shown having their problems. Darel Dieringer and Rex White
crash in the north turn! Frank Schneider's #45 Babb Chevrolet ends the race
stalled in the south turn. Lem Svajian misses the north turn altogether and
runs through the safety markers! During the race, you'll also see great
driving by Dick Beaty, Fonty Flock and Fireball Roberts.
With 36 miles to go the complexion of the race suddenly changes when
Goldsmith's Chevy burns a piston! Owens' #6 Pontiac has been pressuring
Goldsmith all the way, with Fonty Flock, in the #18 Stroppe Mercury in
third place. Cameras follow the black #3 into the pits where Smokey raises
the hood to find Goldsmith's day has ended. Owens again has the lead and
soon after takes the checkered flag, giving both himself and Pontiac their
first win in NASCAR history! A happy Cotton Owens and proud car owner Ray
Nichels are shown in Daytona's victory lane receiving the Harley Earl
trophy from Bill France! Cotton Owens becomes the first driver ever to win
a Grand National race at more than 100 MPH and his average speed of 101.541
MPH is still a record for the old beach and road course at Daytona!

Kurt Busch: Rageaholic
A documentary featuring all of Kurt Busch's on or off track/radio incidents
(that I could find). Credits are at the end. Check the rest of the
description for more info/notes. Pacmancucumber1783 made one for Kyle
Obviously this was uploaded after the 2011 season before the start of the
2012 season, so things change over time. But as most of you know, Kurt has
continued to have meltdowns even after the firing from Penske. So please
dont ask me "Why didnt you put his latest meltdown in here" when a simple
glance at the upload date would answer the question.
People ask me all the time if I could make one for Kyle or Kevin Harvick.
Sorry guys but the answer to that is no. This was way too time consuming,
and I will probably never do a documentary again. And if I do I wont
announce it months in advance like this time, cause trust me there were
several times I wanted to scrap this thing but couldnt since I promised
everyone. But in the end, I have zero regrets about making this, and only
one about the way it turned out. Youll find that out below.
People also ask me why I hate Kurt. I dont. I would like nothing more than
to see him fix his personal demons and be a winner again. Im not a fan, but
Im not a hater. I made this documentary because I enjoy making videos. I
didnt throw personal opinion into this thing. I let the video speak for
itself. I got both sides of the story via interviews, sometimes one of the
two drivers didnt give an interview. Dont blame me for it. Also, to the
trolls out there: I dont drive the damn cars, I dont give the damn
interviews, if you dont like it, get off me.
The only thing I regret about this thing is the title. I picked the name
Rageaholic because it was the last minute and I couldnt think of anything
else. I have always hated the name since. If I could change it, I would.
But I can't, so I wont even say what I would call it now. I get beat up a
lot in the comments from people who say "Where the hell is all the rage he
only raged at the end of the video" or stuff like that. All I can say is,
deal with it.
I know this whole thing is kinda cheezy, but its the best I could do given
the fact that I have no budget and use Windows Live Movie Maker. Thankfully
people have been real kind in the comments.
I would like to thank everyone for all the kind words about this thing and
how much they enjoyed watching it. The positive responses have far exceeded
the negative. Even Kurt fans have told me they liked my work on this one. I
really have great respect for those Kurt fans out there who didnt just
assume I was a hater. For all those who have posted kind words, thank you.
Means a lot when you put a lot of work into something and people like it.
