NASCAR; The Darlington Story, Comic Book Part 1

In 1991 Vortex comics did a series of stories on NASCAR drivers and race tracks. We are presenting here NASCAR Adventures The Story of Darlington, the track too tough to tame.

We previously showed you the history of the Daytona 500 track but Darlington is different. It was the first NASCAR track to host a 500 mile race. Why Darlington? Because it was one of the very few tracks that were paved at that time, most were still dirt! You think today’s NASCAR is wild with over 40 cars on the track, back in 1950 there were 75 cars qualified for the first Darlington 500.

I grew up and lived in Iowa for a good portion of my life before moving to Southern California. After 20+ years we now live outside Nashville Tennessee. I have been into cars since I was old enough to remember. I don't have a brand loyalty although I do prefer American Muscle especially the 1969/1970 NASCAR Aero Cars. (Check out our other web site at www.TalladegaSpoilerRegistry.com site) As long as it has four wheels and an engine I get excited. Few men are lucky enough to be able to share their passion for cars with the woman they love. Fortunately, my wife, Katriana, is also a gear head and many of our activities revolve around the cars. We have a small collection that includes at least one car from each of the Big Three. It includes a Best of Show winner, a survivor, a driver with lots of patina and several others. Katrina prefers all original cars while I like to modify them so we have a few of each. When we aren't playing with cars we are out working with or showing our miniature donkeys.
