Old Timers Racing

Saturday night at Bristol Speedway some of the ledgends of stock car racing will be on the track, racing one more time, this time for charity. Junior Johnson will be there; 77 years old and not only one of the original NASCAR drivers, but a real live moonshine runner. Harry Gant, my all time favorite and a true gentleman, will be behind a steering wheel. David Pearson and Cale Yarborough, two of the very best of all time, whose names are spoken in awe.

Thirty-five laps of late model stock car racing at Bristol, and to top it off
Ned Jarrett, the finest voice ever to narrate a stock car race, will be at the microphone calling the action.

Saturday night, 6PM EDT on ESPN2. I cannot wait.
