It's the technology that ruins racing. Technology is always expensive and NEVER produces better racing. Look at F!, it's a parade at best, while the Saturday night dirt cars are racing every lap. Indycar has smaller fields because of the relatively high tech spec cars. Bring back "garage built" cars with small block eights. Make 'em claimers with a $200k price tag. The less tech, the better the racing.
I stopped watching NASCAR years ago!

Major TV has ruined another sport!

I go back to the time I was a teenager watching one of the greatest stock racers at that time, from right here in Atlanta!

He raced with the almighty HUDSON!

And there was one Black racer that raced under the same company!


Wendell Scott was not the first or only black man racing against long odds and long-held prejudices at NASCAR tracks.

In July 1955, Elias Bowie ran 172 of the 250 laps in one Grand National race in San Mateo, Calif. He was credited with 28th place.

In February 1956, Charlie Scott competed on the Beach Course in one of six Carl Kiekhaefer Chryslers. One was driven by Tim Flock, who won that day.

Itís said that Flockís insistence helped put Scott in the car for one race. He finished 19th.

Charlie Scott and Wendell Scott were not related. They became friends "
