Texas World Speedway

Lets take a look back at a great era of NASCAR racing. Look at not only the cars, but the lack of pit equipment, the haulers, the open trailers, and the independent drivers. 1979 Texas 400, won by Darrel Waltrip.

These pics courtesy of my late Father.

Was there for that one. Great memories.

Thanks for posting these pics, Tom. I know you have a "few" more pics stashed away somewhere!

First Grand National race I ever witnessed in person. To walk up that hill and look down to see those cars lined up on pit road again would be awesome!
