THIS IS NOT AN
OFFICIAL NASCAR SITE.
No income/profit is derived from this site. It is solely intended as a fan's informational site. You will
find information about the beginning and very early days of NASCAR,
plus much more! As a matter of fact, as a resident of the
Daytona Beach area, I PERSONALLY had many conversations with Bill France, Jr.
about this site as I was determined to catalogue early NASCAR
history and he always told me "Go for it, you'll have a LOT of content." How
right he was. See, it is not
just about the drivers . . . . it's about much more.
It's about the stories
behind the stories, the cars, tracks,
owners, mechanics and statistics galore. You will find some of the best
"Bench Racin'" on the net. To qualify for inclusion, the driver
would have only participate in one NASCAR sanctioned race. Others would have to
have had an impact on the sport.
Legends is not just about the "stars",
but those who made the Legend of Nascar. Yes, some entries are
"off the wall" (no pun intended) and some are obscure and each took
research to find, but we will strive to become an information source of
any and all who made the sport what it is today. One of the best things
about this site is how it connects the relatives of people featured
within. Some have reported they knew little of their racing
participation and some see photos for the first time. How rewarding
Our mission will be to collect the most
information we can find. And that's also up to you. If you have a story to
tell, that's what this site is all about. Just email it
