The Golden Years of Nascar were arguably those leading up to and just after the Aero Wars. It was the time of the Grand National Series before it became the Winston Cup! It was at the end of this time period that the engines were huge and powerful and the car bodies were approaching shapes of airplanes. Speeds were climbing with what appeared to be no limit and auto manufactures were spending fortunes to make their cars winners. Part 3 deals with all of these topics but it misses on at least one subject. The coverage of the Aero Wars is light at best and inaccurate at worst.
Regardless of its short comings this is one emotional ride of Nascar history. From Smokey to the Wood Brothers to Holman and Moody all of the cool stuff is there.
