With a lot of new fans coming into watch NASCAR races I thought it may be a good idea to make Wednesdays a day where we share moments from NASCAR races from the past. This helps new NASCAR fans get an appreciation for racing. This will be a weekly update and we will show some cool race highlights from the past.
Since this is the first week I would like to go all the way back to the 1979 Daytona 500. I remember being a kid in NYC and snowed in like everyone else that weekend and watching this. Since I was only 9 or 10 I am not sure if I saw it live or during the sports newscast later in the evening. Either way it was fun for me and I didn’t know why since I was so little. Many people say this is the race that put NASCAR on to the national stage.
I hope you enjoy our weekly series! Let me know by leaving a comment below.
