I think Mario Andretti might have briefly raced in NASCAR during the 1960's. And of course don't forget Junior Johnson. Not to stray from the subject, but would you by chance happen to know if and where I could find any videotapes or DVD's of vintage NASCAR racing? I'd love to see some of that old footage, particularly from the 1969-1970 season where the winged warrior cars (Plymouth Superbird, Dodge Daytona, and Ford Torino/Mercury Cyclone Tallledega) went head-to-head.

I remember Donny Allison driving "The Coke Machine" which as a kid I thought was the height of humour  :P
