Man I have been brainwashed by all those signs on I-95 and then you know you HAVE to stop there.

Nice color schemes!

Not sure about slots but there is a real short track 1:1 track in Dillon home of the world famous South of the Border rest stop/tourist trap.

Back in the day this place was an oasis where all the east coast family travelers stopped. Motels, swimming pools, Rides, zoo, fireworks, RV park, fuel, gifts, restaurants, etc..etc..

Bob, I went to some races at the Dillon dirt track when I was a teen in the late '60's... can't remember if it was a Friday or Saturday night thing. Ford was winning most of the races. I grew up in Chesterfield County.

BTW, where are you and how come us new guys had to put in our location, but some of you who have been here longer get to remain incognito?

John, Same track but it was paved a few years back. Never was there when it was dirt but it sure is nice paved....

You can change you location in your profile page.

Googled a bit and found some photos of Dillon Raceway after it was abandoned and overgrown with trees, bushes, etc.

Also this page from an old newsletter... funny, I remember hearing that name Tommy Bostick over the PA at the races I went to. I think he was driving a Fairlane at that time... this newsletter was from '69 and it shows him (#33) in a Galaxie.

Also, a shot of a Chevelle from that time period... very popular in those days for building up into a dirt track car.

Thanks Matt !!! Coming from you that means alot.

The body is one of two 4" spec bodies allowed in the FCR-NCS Grand National division.

As I was told by my local track owner where I bought it that they are being sold by JK but.........it is molded O/S where the rear license plate would be.

Maybe Ron can chime in and give us the details.

John, Great story. That would be a long haul from N. Wilksboro for Jr.. Bet he was not happy with second place money.

We went there in 2008 with the Wyatt Motorsports #29 NASCAR LMSC based out of Langley, VA., never saw it before and driver Casey Wyatt finished second at the Thanksgiving feature race. We had a built motor with a 500cfm 2BBl. The locals and the winner were running GM 604 crate motors with 4BBLs as it was not a NASCAR sanctioned track. There is a bit of a hump off turn 2 that we didn't totally figure out.

From the DMS website:

The original 4/10 mile dirt oval opened around 1961 as Dillon County Raceway, operating through 1970. It reopened from 1977 to 1980. In 2006, badly over grown, it was bought by Ron Barfield and Stuart Jackson. The track was paved and given new life. The 2007 season was the first for the new Dillon Motor Speedway. The track continues to grow and improve.

Well Bob... that $500 second place money, adjusted for inflation, would be about $3000 now, so Junior probably wasn't too unhappy.

John, Good point, and with fuel for the tow rig at 19 cents a gallon cut with 15% moonshine life is good.

So lets see :umnik2:...tow fuel at $3.50 gal, 30 gals of race fuel at $7 bucks, 8 tires at $120+ ea. $500 to do the shocks on the dyno, $850 for hotel and food and $1200 payout for second place.

Junior did a lot better then we did. :shout: :swoon:
