    Guys, while I admit to being deeply saddened by the loss of the pics here a couple days ago, we gotta remember the mods here are only human, and sometimes make mistakes, as humans are prone to do.

    Also would like to add that "Redline 7000", will be on Ch 292 on Dish, on 2/7/2013 (which also happens to be my birthday).

    Here are a few from Nashville. First are the grandstands, next is Tiny Lund's 1963 crash, and Coo Coo Marlin's '62 Chevy, which I believe was destroyed in the filming of a movie made at Nashville. From Jimmies Old Time Racing.

    In the Marty Robbins movie that used coo coo Marlin car they used a Junk yard car for the fire scenes. The race car was sold to a country music star I think was named Roy Druskey..

    The name was "" Hell on Wheels"" listen in a garage scene and he will refer to Hamiltons Garage.. This was Bobby Hamiltons Father and Grand fathers place garage where they worked.. The Hamiltons kept up Martys cars he drove and another driven by Bob Ruther aka Bobby who is B Hamiltons God Father..

    Thanks for these Nashville photo's. Man do these open a flood gate.

    I am very curious, does anyone know anything about PB Crowell out of Franklin Tn. these days?

    Can you equate that to the name of a channel so I can maybe find it on my DirectTV? Love to get that one on a DVD.

    Oh yeah, Happy Birthday!

    Thanks for all the new photos being posted, guys. Great to see that stuff. And remember, there's always The Dogfight site for stuff later than the mods allow.

    Here are some of the photos from the Beauchamp/Petty accident at Daytona, 1961. Also found the one of the #63 Starliner, but can't recall who the driver was....Dick Hutcherson? I apologize if these are already on here.

    Looks like the country music industry was involved in racing, before T.G. Shepherd sponsored Tim Richmond. And, of course, there always seems to be a woman involved :D Otis Deck's "Pretty Woman" '57, a little worse for wear, had some help from Roy Orbison (is that a truck arm setup under there?), and here is Marty Robbins' own "Devil Woman" car, with L to R; Preacher Hamilton, Marty, and Bud Hamilton.

    The Otis Deck car was on leafs. If you look close you can see the 12 inch long shackels.. and wadded up leaf spring. Otis was also a drag race car owner and driver who won some national meets.

    Thanks for posting the pic of the Hamiltons with Marty Robbins. I am a big Bobby Hamilton fan (hence the "BHfanGB") and am always on the look out for pics of his pre-cup cars as well as those of people associated with him. The guy had a life story that would break most people's hearts. It's pretty amazing what he overcame to get to the level of racing that he did, a very talented man who was taken far too soon.

    To add some more country music stars who sponsored cars at Nashville. Brenda Lee/ The Oak Ridge Boys// Loreta Lynn/// Webb Peirce/// Ferlen Huskey.. And some I forget as its been 47 to 50 years ago that I attended the tues night shows............................ Nashville raced limited sportsman and cadet/ figure 8 shows on Tuesdays..................................... You could look in the stands and see lots of country preformers as they usually did not work on tuesdays and could come to the races. Backk then people would leave them alone.

    For the people looking for Red Line 7000 or Hell On Wheels I found both on Amazon and Hell on Wheels on ebay. Ebay redirected me to other sites for Red Line and on both sites you have to scroll past the Hell on Wheels series.

    I remember on one trip to the AA 400 at Nashville I noticed a young local latemodel driver running his first or atleast one of his first races in the ASA/AllPro type cars and thought, this kid is pretty good to stand out amoung these "Name" drivers.

    As far as Bobby Hamilton. The person who gave him his start has never been given credit. This person is Tony Formosa.................................................... When bobby was a teen he would hang around the Formosa group. Later they gave him a hobby car a 70 Chevelle. He cobbled it together with cast away junk. He drove that POS smooth and always ran in the top 4...................................................... Later when the T F group started racing on the Nashville 5/8 mile track Tony let Bobby drive the car. Many races were won by this pair. ................................ Later came the offer to drive in NASCAR all sucess due to Tony Formosa.. Now manager of Nashville speedway.....................................................On a some what funny or odd note. Bobby was leading a Enduro race at Highland rim speedway in his Uncles daily transporation buick skylark fresh off the street. on lap 170 to 180 of 200. the car interior filled up with steam. The windows were up as it was New Years day. The culprit was the heater core broke and filled the car with anti freeze. i watched as he and his uncle changed the hose to by pass the heater core as the checker flag fell. On the next work day his uncle drove the same buick to work. I have lots more that I will post later.. Bobby..
