Wish the quality was better on this video, but the subject matter is terrific. Love the interviews with various drivers regarding their thoughts about the STP turbine car and it was great to see again the famous "thrill of victory, agony of defeat" Wide World of Sports intro.

I was there the first day but we couldn't stay for the second day so I only saw about 16 laps of the race but I still remember what it sounded like. I was on the infield of turn number 1.

First thing I noted: There were more than 90 cars attempting to qualify. :unknw:
