Experiments in pit work.

Richard Petty "fixin'" the vinyl roof of his Plymouth Road Runner at the 1968 Daytona 500... and yes, those are boots.

  1. When I was a kid, I remember seeing a sequence of shots, it was either in Road & Track or Competition Press, of Dan Gurney and (I want to say) Bob Bondurant using tin snips to open up the roof of their Cobra Daytona to put in a roof vent.

    And yeah, Petty wears cowboy boots. He still does, so far as I know.

  2. back before Nascar sucked.
