The 61st Running of the Daytona 500!!

1,170 DeGebra  1.2 years ago

On February 16th 2020 is the 61st annual running of the Great American Race.

In this forum I will be recapping some of the best moments of the Daytona 500, dating back to 1957, when the track was right next to the ocean.

This is an image from the race in 1957, the number 87 coming into what looks like turn two, the number 87 57' Chevrolet Bel-Air.

This is an image from the 1959 Daytona 500. If you are wondering what is going on, that is a 37 car pile up of the 64 cars in the field. To this day, it is still the biggest wreck in NASCAR history.

This is an image of the 1960 Daytona 500. Ned Jarret, next to Johnnie Dollar.

This image is of Joe Eudanks. The year of the photo from my knowledge is unknown. That is some things I have reccaped. I will post another forum later this week with the dragster I have been working on. There are 13 days left until that green flags waves again. Have a great day!!

    @Sm10684 I have a pretty decent design, for it. It is a 17X10 Block with 2020 Daytona 500, and I put a basic cash board of what the cars stopped using back in 2015 with the tachometer gauge. It has 4 switches, a lil pressure gauge and the tach.

    @DeGebra download this and write something with it

    I'd write "the daytona 500" and don't forget to make it stylish too

    From the info I have, 500 is either the 61st the 62nd or 65th. The furthest back I could find of the 500 is 1955, so who really knows.
