Throwback Thursday

Dale Earnhardt dominates the 1990 Motorcraft 500 at Atlanta. Interesting nugget around the 34 minute mark; Jerry Punch talks about Bill Elliott's "onboard computer" to monitor tire temps.

1988 Motorcraft 500, Legendary broadcaster Keith Jackson's ONLY flag-2-flag NASCAR race. He did other NASCAR events but they were always part of ABC's wide-world of sports spectaculars. It's also Earnhardt's first win in a points race driving the famed black #3. This is pure gold....

. Oct 94 Martinsville busch backstretch pit fire
