NASCAR Fans: “MORE SHORT TRACKS!!”
NASCAR: Hey, we’ve got two short track races this weekend.
NASCAR Fans: *don’t show up*
NASCAR Fans: “We want Truck and Xifinty races with NO Cup drivers!”
NASCAR: Cup drivers are banned from running certain races… and there are two standalone races at Iowa (A SHORT TRACK) without Cup drivers in the field.
NASCAR Fans: *don’t show up*
Me: …This is why we can’t have nice things.

Car Life March 1966 petty

http://articles.dailypress.com/1992-02-23/sports/9202230107_1_petty-enterprises-racing-quarter-mile-drag


“The death of then 8-year-old Wayne Dye remains the darkest moment in Richard Petty’s glorious racing career. The youngster from Austell, Ga., was standing with his father on Feb. 28, 1965 as Petty began a quarter-mile drag race at Southeastern Dragway near Atlanta. Moments later, the boy was dead, killed by a wheel off Petty’s car. Seven other fans were injured, including the boy’s father. Petty was drag racing that Sunday afternoon because Plymouth was boycotting stock car racing. NASCAR president Bill France Sr. triggered the walkout by banning the potent Hemi engine that produced 26 Mopar victories in 1964.”
