This is part 2 of the 3 part series American Stock: The Golden Era Of NASCAR, we featured part 1 last Sunday (you can click here to see it if you missed it) and we’ll be featuring the 3rd part next week.

The early years of NASCAR are amongst the most entertaining of any motor racing series in the world, I’ve always loved the stories of the early amateur drivers with their rag-tag teams, shoestring budgets and cars held together with duct tape, questionable welding and chewing gum.
