nyseattitude: I find the way they turn left amazing. I've never seen anyone turn left better. They are truly the men among men when it come to turning left.

BILL ELLIOTT 4 EVAR!!!1
Adolf Oliver Nipples: You never heard of Joe Weatherly? He has the most awesome gravestone in the world:[image2.findagrave.com image 250x166]For those of you that don't remember NASCAR when it was still just the good ol' boys, that is the outline of Riverside International Raceway, the Track That Dan Gurney Built, the track that ate brakes and drivers for breakfast, where A.J. Foyt received last rites when he lost his brakes approaching turn 9 (the hairpin after the long straight), and where Joe Weatherly died. His death (and Richard Petty's severe head injuries a few years later) led to the use of window nets.Riverside is now a shopping mall. Just another big loss in racing history.

Mztlplx: I know all 5. I'm old. Lawn, off, you know the drill.Joe Weatherly has the stands in Turn 4 at Daytona named in his honor.Fred Lorenzen won pretty much everything there was to win in the middle '60s. Sad he's kind of forgotten now.And Rex White was one of the original Ford Racing drivers (and won a championship as well).
