Default The Daytona Sands



This video clip is nuts. At some point, you figure some poor old sap would be all, "Hey man... You figure we ought a yellow flag this corner or something before someone gets hurt? Or maybe just move the DNF?" But no... No poor old sap stepped forward...

Those two guys up in that stand had to be experiencing a serious pucker factor on some of those near misses.

Speedvision showcased the color version of this filmstrip many years ago...I believe it's floating around on YouTube somewhere. This was the 1952 Sportsman-Modified race.

Luckily, the modified & sportsman cars usually had roll bars (albeit usually a single loop)...Grand National cars were not required to have roll bars until around/after 1954 IIRC. Heck, seatbelts were not even mandatory until after 1951!

Racing with FENDER SKIRTS on??? Guess somebody thought that was a good idea. BTW, especially liked the "new" old HAMB girls. Saved that one to my (old fashioned) memory.

Watch the color video at about the 8:30 mark...I don't think those are fender skirts...they look like a bar that goes across the fender opening, for what purpose, I'm not sure. I highly doubt NASCAR would have let him out there with fender skirts, but you never know!

I'm wondering too why they didn't throw a yellow and get that car off the track? Different rules and saftey concerns back then.

It makes me think of local dirt track racing and how much more entertaining it is than the NASCAR of today.

Thanks Ryan and you too gwhite. Great stuff.
