on pit road at New Smyrna in the mid '80s. I believe he was the World Series champion at least once.

I see that.

Well, the important thing is that you are in control of the position. That is kind of the objective...

Default #40

Pete Hamilton. A good driver, I did not know he was a chassis guy, but Balough spoke very highly of him in his book.

https://www.google.com/search?hl=en&...vC1HApD3q_CAM:

Sterling Marlin. An old school racer, just like his father before him. The guy is still racing late models, despite some health issues.

https://www.google.com/search?q=ster...qiKkmlC12D_GM:

Yeah, I know they both drove cars other than #40, but it was about next up chronologically...

Heavy sigh. Since no one else has, I might as well do it.

Although he is changing rides in 2019, Kurt Busch {"The Outlaw"} is largely associated with the #41.

https://www.google.com/search?hl=en&...MMfQQ2YcfeS7M:

A polarizing figure, here Kurt works on his romantical technique, this time actually almost hitting his target:

Key Largo driver Gary Ross brought this LM to Hialeah and Palm Beach. I always got a kick out of this "Cadillac" body with bamboo numbers.

#46 Greg Sacks

Yes, he drove the "City Chevrolet" (Rick Hendrick dealership in Charlotte) sponsored car in the Talladega 500 in 1990, finishing second. The filmed footage was used in the movie, "Days of Thunder".

https://www.google.com/search?hl=en&...bke64_exLcROM:

I initially watched Greg in modifieds at NSS world series in the early '80s and was impressed. Smooth & fast.

https://www.google.com/search?biw=14...Y8WU7pUaVut0M:

Of course, he is best known for his upset victory at Talladega in 1985 in a Digard "development" car, during a year when Awsome Bill was just about unbeatable. It was good for press, and Gary Nelson was behind the effort. The car sure ran good...

https://youtu.be/s5Nrg4nA-CA?t=12

His final race was in a Jr Xfinity car in 2010, sponsored by his family owned business, "GT Vodka".

Cool Sacks also drove #50 in Nascar

When I worked at Dingman Brothers Racing in Winter Park Florida Greg drove our car, #50 in Nascar Cup races. Joe Harris was our crew chief, and Whip Mulligan was my room mate. Those guys were some awesome racers.

How is this for an interesting racer? US Representative Bill Posey has served central Florida for 4 terms in congress, and recently won re-election for another 2 years.

Bill raced late models at Orlando and New Smyrna for several years. He was also the promoter/operator of Eau Gallie Speedway as a young man.

Someone more versed in Bill's background could provide a more compelling story than I can, but no doubt this is a unique member of our racing family!

Bill got his politicin' abilities by raising sponsorship money to race, no doubt.

#48: James Hylton

NASCAR rookie of the year in 1966, James ran mid-pack equipment (at best) and finished second, third, & fourth in points over the years.

Hylton ran his last xfinity event in '11 at age 77 (Dick Anderson: Plenty of time for a comeback).

Here is a guy who is STILL enjoying his amazing racing career. South Florida driver Danny Maddox was driving this 6 cylinder Sportsman at Hialeah when I was a mere waif. Prior to this, he ran in the old Tornado division, and continues to compete at Citrus County Speedway. Although I don't know the exact year that Danny started, it is clear that he has been competing for nearly 50 years!

During the many years I watched Danny Maddox run at Hialeah, Hollywood and Palm Beach, we was a consistent winner, and a racer who tore up very little equipment.

Another good looking race car in post #84. Although it looks like a '55, the "louvers" on the front fender indicate it is a '57. At least that fender, anyway. Those six cylinder cars used to be runnin' s.o.b.s, didn't they? In fact, the racing was not unlike today's sportsman cars with crate engines. Not the brute sideways strength of a big block late model, but close side by side racing.

#52--Kenny Schrader

On the other hand, there is Kenny Schrader, who has torn up plenty of equipment.

https://www.google.com/search?hl=en&...pElqWA5i69JrM:

Once at the end of a race at Daytona that I attended, he was going for it on the last lap and got hit in the right rear coming to the flag in Junie Donlavey's car. As the car headed straight for the wall, I thought "You know, given the right circumstances, a car could not only get into the stands, but into the tower". Shortly after that they moved the tower straight up about 200 feet.

Also saw Kenny get out of a Cup car that had been torn up in about four wrecks at a short track--the last of which finally killed it, climb onto the roof, and jump up and down. When asked why, he replied "That was the only part of the thing I did not bend.".

Still, he was and is a helluva racer, and continues to run short track events--mostly dirt modifieds, to this day.

It is hard to imagine that an old Caprice could be a cutting-edge trend setter, but this one was a glimpse of the future in January, 1976.

At that time, Hialeah's Cyclone division was a rough and tumble class of cars from the 1950's. I am not sure, but I suspect that the rules must have changed over the winter, and that newer cars were allowed to run.

On opening night of the 1976 season, Bobby Quinones brought out this beautiful Chevy. It was the first Cyclone to be built from a newer model car, an its spectacular air-brushed paint job really made it stand out. Remember, the Cyclones were rough. Many cars looked like they had been through the crusher and then painted with house paint.

Bobby was a Cyclone veteran, and very quickly this Caprice turned into a steady winner.

One of the regulars at Orlando Speedway, he won his share and was a "clean" driver.

Tuck drilled the well for my then new home in '84.

Nicest guy in the world. Until you put him in a racecar, then Joe found out "the rest of the story".

A responsible opposing viewpoint. The greatest driver to drive a car numbered 6 was Maynard Troyer of Spencerport, NY. He was a NASCAR modified standout driver and founder of Troyer Engineering one of the leading asphalt and dirt modified chassis builders in the Northeastern United States in 1977 until he retired from the company in 1990. Maynard passed on earlier this year: May 10th to be precise.
