Ned Jarrett, Junior Johnson, Dan Gurney, Parnelli Jones, A.J. Foyt and Jr Johmson names that started NASCAR. You’re at Riverside, 1965 Motor Trend 500 and this is one of the best films and action for that time. These really were stock cars and you could buy (almost) the same thing at your local dealer. Real cars, real racing, Real drivers, real dangerous!
In the wreck with A.J. Foyt he broke his back in that wreck, but came back to win the pole at Indy a few months later. Watch Ned Jarrett sitting in the pits and the car catches fire. Also notice the speed on pit lane, what speed? Riverside closed in 1989 and a shopping mall opened on the site in 92.
