A bit of Daytona History is here in General Car Chat

Past President Ray Fox's famous car driven by David Pearson

I was at the Living legends of Auto Racing Awards Banquet the year that David pearson was inducted into the Hall Of Fame.

Ray Fox told the story that he needed one more driver for one of his cars at the 500 in Atlanta.

Ray Fox found David Pearson working as a roofer in Atlanta, climbed onto the roof and asked David if he would drive for him. David Pearson agreed....and as a result David may have won the pole position....and may have also won the race......don't expect perfection with my memory.....lol

Years later I heard David Pearson telling the story....almost word for word...and at the end David said:

"I climbed down off that roof where I was working in the hot sun, I drove Ray Fox's car, I won....and thanks to Ray Fox, I never climbed onto a roof again".-David Pearson

The two oval shaped objects beside the car are pennys that have been squashed and elongated
.....to give some perspective as to size and scale of this model of the Daytona track.




Louise Smith was one of the very rare early female stock car racers.


Vicki Wood was one of the very rare early female stock car racers.
