The Daytona 500. In 1969

When men were men, the racing was real and you could go down to your local Big 3 dealership and order basically the same car that won the race the next day.

You want a Big Block with that?

There ain't no 200 mile an hour parades here boys and they were, doing 200 miles an hour, down the back stretch clear back in 1969.

They had a surprise winner on the last lap that year.

Under ten minutes long and it's even in color.

A little trip down memory lane for some of you.
