grassroot's racer dan mclaughlin pic # 1 --another "backbone" of modified racing--saw him beat richie evans at daytona memorial stadium i think 1976 !!
nascar tried to go head to head w / new smyrna modifieds & late models-didn't work !!-- i believe dan drew pole and gave the outside to richie the whole way-and richie could not get by !!! ; and never layed a glove on him !!-
was with the late everette & farmer cranmer--we went over to congratulate dan !!-he was ecstatic !!
