"if there were not any tracks, where would these drivers ply their craft?"
I didn't know the only asphalt and dirt within driving distance was supplied by NASCAR.
Tracks accommodate fans who come to see races. Those who perform the races bring the fans which give the track and seats purpose. If the tracks aren't built by this guy or that guy, they'll drive fast someplace else.
I think its a win-win situation to make the sport bigger and make a profit, but the drivers aren't guaranteed the purse for showing up. They're the ones putting in the seat time to earn their prizes AND their support. It's a very clear-cut balance for this sport to succeed - You need a facility, you need cars, and you need drivers.
So who was supplying cars? Sponsors and Winnings... who's the big name from Winston who must have been a major factor in the success? What about the rubber these cars had on'em? Stick Goodyear in there. The safety committee representative? Lots of people keep these things going, not just those who think of the idea but the ones who've been responsible for helping throughout many dedicated years.
Actually in the begining of NASCAR there were no NASCAR owned tracks as there are now under the guise of International Speedway Corporation, which is owned and operated by the France family. There were no Bruton Smith owned tracks as there is now. NASCAR was originally formed as a promotion only corporation, one that would guarentee purses that would be paid and not some shady promoter leaving a track with 25 laps to go with the entire purse.

As far as the Driver-Promoter issue, is this not the same question as which came first, the chicken or the egg. My only contention is that there are at least 10 of the early pioneers who developed and made NASCAR a real life dream and they should hold an edge over Dale Sr. I know you have your opinion and I respect it, however, I believe that these people should represent the era of the beginning of NASCAR, more than the people that made the more current NASCAR.

Ya know... I don't like Polka music. And guess what. Hardly hear it. Know what else? I've never been to a polka music forum. I definately wouldn't take the time to read about it or post a message. Get a clue, why don't you?
