It’s a Dirt Track Life: Memories of Dirt Track
Racing from Dawsonville to Gatlinburg
This DVD recounts the “glory days” of dirt-track racing,
primarily in Tennessee and Georgia. After World War II, dirt tracks
could be found in many communities and races were attended by huge
numbers of fans. Many early dirt-track racers had learned to drive
while hauling moonshine in the mountains of Tennessee and Georgia.
Some drivers were so talented that they seized the opportunity, left
the mountain roads and tracks, and raced on the sandy beaches of
Daytona Beach. Eventually some of these become race car drivers when
NASCAR was formed.
This documentary contains over 200
photographs of vintage dirt tracks, racers, and cars. Vintage
footage of racing is included from tracks at Moccasin Bend,
Cleveland, Ashway, Atomic, Old Smokey Mountain, and Newport in
Tennessee. Speed, spills and thrills from Lakewood, Thomaston and
the Cow Pasture tracks from Georgia are included. Mid-1950s footage
also shows racing on the sand at Daytona Beach.
