Sid Haig, star of the 1960's racing film "Pit Stop" died on Saturday September 21st. He was 80 years old. In the movie "Pit Stop", Haig played a real over the top role of a crazed nut case waco figure-8 driver at Ascot Park Gardena. The movie has countless real filmed minutes of figure-8 stock and pre-war "coupes" races at Ascot Park. The movie was filmed in 1967 and released in 1969. If you only see one movie about Ascot Park racing in the 1960s, it must be "Pit Stop".
