Nope. Same sequence.Wasn't Las Vegas the 2nd race of the year? Feels kinda early for Atlanta not that I'm complaining. This place is fast
To answer your 2nd question first: My uncle was a garage technician for 2 years with Junior Johnson back in the mid-60s. I grew up in Roanoke, VA and as a kid had the opportunity to travel with him to visit Martinsville, Darlington, Richmond, and Charlotte. The first race I attended was when I was 10 years old at Martinsville. Sat about 10 rows up in turn 1 with no hearing protection and left with my ears ringing, a headache, sunburn, and body covered in rubber pellets. I had the draw-dropping opportunity as a kid to meet Richard Petty, as well as Junior, Bobby Issac, brothers Bobby and Donnie Allison, Fred Lorenzen, and others. I fell away from the sport through my early adult years but went to a race at Loudon in 1995 and saw Gordon win enroute to his first championship (I liked Gordon before this but was hooked thereafter).thanks SJ...who's your pick to make the chase? I'm with KB...
question: Where did you acquire your racing interest? Familiar with the Modified Division in the Northeast?
