Auto Racing – 1961 To 1986 – Jim McKay Provides Highlights Of Auto Racing Over Past 25 Years

Every now and then a really special video rolls up for me to write about and post here at ImaSportsphile and this is one of those…..as the always eloquent and elegant Jim McKay provides a walk down auto racing memory lane over the 25 years of competition from 1961 to 1986….for there is absolutely no other sports commentator that can bring great moments in a sport to life quite like McKay…..so, from Maynard Troyer’s crash at the 1971 Indy 500…..to Jim Nichols crash in the national drag racing finals against Don Prudhomme…..to the head to head competition between drag racing’s queen Shirley “Cha Cha” Muldowney verses perineal champ Don Garlits…..to A J Foyt’s 1961 Indy 500 win after the two lead cars crashed on the final turn of the race…..to the life and times of NASCAR king Richard Petty including his 7 wins at Darlington…and so much more. 

Simply put, this is rare precious auto racing footage that we at ImaSportsphile are so fortunate to have this piece of “pure gold” in our treasure chest of vintage memories…..as a 25 year snapshot of vintage auto racing memories unfolds to our viewers herewith.
