    are yall serious? yall do realize it says highlights in the description,
    and of course they went 500 miles back then

    I think that was Rockingham 1983

    @Acrokidflyer098 are you serious? The races were actually longer back then
    because there’s a lot of sissy new fans that are whining about the races
    being too long so some races got shortened to 400 miles. Plus the speeds
    are faster so the races don’t last nearly as long. The 500 mile races at
    Dover, for example, used to last 4 and a half hours on average. I miss
    those days. But I still love NASCAR today

    @tr0uble192 I think back then they didn’t race 500 miles. But we do today

    @erasetoimprove As much as I like NASCAR back at the old days I think you
    are right. The races were longer. Sad we don’t enjoy NASCAR that much as we
    did back then today.

    I am pretty sure a 500 mile race isn’t 46 minutes long…but I am wrong all
    the time.

    @Acrokidflyer098 The engine in Petty’s car was found to be 24 cubic inches
    too large and found to have left side tires all the way around.

    This is the infamous Richard Petty Tire and engine race correct?

  • newjersey421 2 years ago

    A 381 engine and left-side tires all around! Oh my! lol

    @Winston2003 Yeah, I am a jackass.

    This race may have been taped, edited down to an hour (without commercials,
    it probably was about 46 minutes) and perhaps broadcast that evening.

    @trojanfan1989 Think so

  • MikeSkanz 2 years ago

    @Acrokidflyer098 I don’t necessarily enjoy it less, it’s just different
    that’s all. Personally I wish they ran a couple 1,000 mile races each year
    and ran a few more road courses too.

    This is just a condensed tape delayed version of the race. It was 500 miles
    back then and Mizlou used to tape races and send them to other stations
    like syndicated stuff.
