And then there was Riverside International Raceway. What a classic road course. I took pictures of the Winston Cup race in 1984, standing on the pit wall during that race.
Petty had a rear end blow up and have pictures of him standing beside his car on pit row. No pit crew uniforms, the old pump handles to fill fuel, and guys smoking in the pits.
Terry Labonte won that race and eventually won the championship that year.
We had the good fortune to have a friend that knew Ralph Seagraves, VP of RJ Reynolds. We sat in the Winston Suite and visited with Petty, Allison, Labonte among others.
Those were the days.

It has a link to some pics also.
