3 min read

We had been race car or truck drivers when NASCAR was nevertheless a motley bunch of fantastic ol’ boys, shade tree mechanics and moonshiners.

We determined with Fireball Roberts, Curtis Turner or Randolph County’s very own Lee Petty. We had been pushed by the want for speed.

Or, at minimum, a fantastic time.

It was the 1950s the nation experienced conquer the Despair, the Germans and the Japanese and now was hurtling towards prosperity on a grand scale. Those people of us developing up back then had almost nothing more to get worried about than who would get the Globe Series.

Or, the Darlington 500.

Due to the fact, you see, we did not have movie online games to hold us occupied — and within.

Our community on what’s now named Andrew Hunter Road — the one particular that sales opportunities from Highway 64 to Franklinville — was top rated-significant with boys. The Penkavas experienced 4 boys, the Daniels throughout the road experienced two far more and the Trotters up on the freeway experienced a few of boys our age.
