1965 Impala SS NASCAR - Morning practice Infineon Raceway Sears Point Oct 30, 2011
Oct 30, 2011 HSCRS (Historic Stock Car Racing Series) Morning practice in
my 1965 Impala SS NASCAR with my Mom in the right seat enjoying every
minute of it (legs crossed just enjoying the ride!). Amazing what 40 years
of stock car development will do including lots of point bys but hell of a
lot of fun running with the newer cars!
# 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.
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.

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!
