NASCAR in the South
I guess almost everyone knows that NASCAR started in the South - with good ol' boys running moonshine. Super speedways are the big ticket items now, but not too long ago NASCAR stars raced on smaller tracks around the South. This 1960's photo shows (left to right) Marty Robbins, Red Farmer, Freddy Fryar and Bobby Allison at Boyd's Speedway just outside Chattanooga, TN. Recently Boyd's Speedway has reopened with standing room only races on Friday nights. Ya'll come to see us!!
