NASCAR has raced in Houston, Texas once.

What year did NASCAR's big boys visit Houston and at what track did they race?

Well it's been a day and a half so I guess I'll give the answer and ask another question...


NASCAR's big boys visited Meyer Speedway in Houston on June 23, 1971.

I believe that Pontiac has 15 championships.

I'm not sure if was a suggestion or a rule but I guess the questions were to be kept to post-1970.

Anyway, when and where did the last Nascar dirt track race take place?

9-30-70 at Raleigh and won by Richard Petty.

Questions can go back to 1949 but keep all related to Nascar Cup racing.

One of the best drivers in Motorsports and the absolute best driver ever in Trans Am had 1 Nascar Cup win. What is his name and at what track was his win.

Well, we've got a 1 in 55 shot.

I'll go with John Soares who won at Carrell Speedway in Gardena, California in 1954.

Darn right Donohue was good. He was one of the greatest, but since his efforts were cut short by the "Grim Reaper", unless you were a student of NASCAR at the time, he is not a standout nor a name one might find by combing those record books of NASCAR.
Thanks Muggle not, but I'll pass on offering the next question and throw the lead back to you. :D

Fireball's first win came on August 13, 1950 at Occoneechee Speedway in Hillsboro, North Carolina.
