From when NASCAR tried to make their own road racing series

Grand Am wasn't the first time NASCAR got involved in road racing. They tried to make what was called the Left/Right (LR) series in the mid-1980s with purpose built road racing cars due to a lack of ovals on their national touring series schecule west of the Mississippi River in the 1980s and before the big boom happened.

The series, however, went no where:

Just might be heading back that way if the Concord roval is a hit, which it won't be.

Speaking of which, Pocono wants one of the Nascar Cup races to be held at the road course.

The American oval scene (especially primarily stockcar tracks) is in such decline, I'd prefer they keep the speedways and add short tracks. Hitting the rovals at historic speedways will be a further detriment to the series.

Keep ovals, run a dirt track, hit some of our lovely natural terrain road courses or stage a street race in downtown Charlotte. Anything but rovals, please!

I'd have to dig and can't right now, but I believe there were several times these raced in IMSA GTO / GTU in the Florida races for sure, but also others. Maybe they were just class converts and coverts to TA....

Potentially, but that in fact was the exact car that was featured in the video shown,

Oh sweet. I learnt something today. Thanks, Matt!

Bobby's 88 500 winning Buick came touring through my town a few years back and I ended up with his autograph, one of the few I do have.



He one the 200 that year, too, but the car above was the one that ended up in the catch fencing at 'dega. Someone put it back together as a show piece.

The Golden Era for gorgeous looking racecars, as far as I'm concerned.

Yup. And still looked like something you'd see on the road and sounded OH so nice.
