Wow. So many names there I remember (both drivers and tracks)---some drivers you mention I saw run and some I read about after they retired. I was born in 1969 and was going to races in early to late 1980s. Neil Bonnett also drove the 21 Purolator at points during that time. I saw Buddy Baker race. Saw Harry Gant run in the Skoal Bandit.

Last race I attended was in late 1980s and I kept up with it a few years after that to watch Davey Allison until that plane crash happened. Liked Alan Kulwicki until that plane crash happened.

Neil Bonnett was my favorite until Davey Allison came along, but I always pulled for the the Alabama Gang growing up (which should completely explain why I hated Cale Yarbrough).

I liked Earnhardt over Elliott when they were at the top.

I was no longer watching racing at the time, but turned on the TV one late Sunday afternoon and saw folks gathered around Earnhardt's car after the wreck at Daytona. I saw the replays and the speculation and kept the TV on, then we got the news.

I'm 3 years older than you.

I never cared for Earnhardt or Elliot. I remember proudly cheering for Waltrip (in the #11 Bud/KFC car) at the 84 World 600 and having chicken bones thrown at me. I basked in the moment as the bones reigned down o'er me :lol:

IIRC, Davey was a helicopter crash

I just watched Talladega Nights again on Comedy Central. That movie makes me laugh & not much does these days. Always catch something new. "We keep Pet Shop Boys & Seal on the jukebox for profiling purposes". LMFAO!

Yep. Davey crashed a helicopter at Talladega. That was close enough to a plane for me. My college roommate went to his funeral, but could only watch from pulling off I-20 because that was as close as he could get.

I didn't care much for Darryl Waltrip early to middle in his career, but liked him later. I remember reading articles from him about wondering why people hated him while he was so successful and he looked inward and made changes. Unlike Cale Yarbrough, I no longer remember why I didn't like Waltrip at the time. But I do remember that I did dislike him, and I remember later thinking he was all all right guy. Then he became a good commentator.

I think the primary reason I liked Waltrip was that all the necks hated him. He was the perfect heel, kind of a NASCAR Nature Boy

That's likely my reason for liking Kulwicki. He didn't fit the script.

Wooo!

In your earlier post, when you mentioned Hueytown, I knew we were from the same era. The only folks who know that town name are folks who followed racing when the Alabama Gang was running. I'm 20 miles from there and the only association anybody would know for Hueytown is the Allison family.

Red Farmer still races occasionally at the Talladega Short Track. He's like 90 years old.

You folks do realize that this is just the kinda stuff people imagine when they hear the words "drive by truckers" and "southern" and run screaming in the other direction, dontcha? ;) :)

Ha, I’m starting to see why “Daddy’s Cup” is so highly coveted ‘round these parts despite not really being a top-tier Cooley song for me, personally. Glad I finally got to see it, though. And glad it kindles such fond recollections for all you Heathens. Keep em coming!

I almost had BTB sucked in with talk about boobies and we had to go run him off again.

Glad I popped in here to read everyone's reactions to the stream. If The Cooleys do another one I hope they are able to fix the choppiness of the video.

I was just starting to get fucked up when it ended but Cooley's fingerpicking on Women Without Whiskey, the version of Uncle Frank with a different arrangement and you know Daddy's Cup is why you always go to the show / stay for the stream!

Exactly what I was thinking!! More boobies, less iron please.

In the expert opinion of this group will car racing retain its appeal when the cars are all electric?

I dunno. Reading this thread is the first time I've started to understand the appeal of car racing.


(It's the boobies, right?)

That's great. My one quibble is that the description of dirt late models makes them sound like some backyard duct tape and glue contraption. They are highly sophisticated, purpose built cars.
I've seen Red race a couple times. He's such a legend it was kinda surreal the first time I saw him walking around in the pits.
Those guys were extreme, hardcore racers. Bobby Allison kept racing at local short tracks all over the country even when he was at the height of his NASCAR career. He built the cars and raced them. By most all accounts he was a mechanical genius. There were things he discovered with the setup of a front end that revolutionized stock cars.

That's a great question and I've thought about it a lot.
My short answer is that I don't know but there will always be some appeal. Trying to get your car to go faster than someone else's will always appeal to some folks.

Thanks for this.

I have a weird love/hate relationship with Cooley's acoustic versions of his songs. Some are really awesome, and others are weird and off-putting. I'm sure that's just me....
