Legendary Short Track Bowman Gray Stadium was recently featured on Fox Sports Net's "Totally NASCAR (airs Mon- Friday at 5:30PM). The segment highlighted the 1/4 mile flat bullring's illustrious and colorful history and how the heritage has helped it remain one of the country's strongest tracks.
Bowman Gray is the longest running NASCAR Weekly Racing facility in America. Fonty Flock won the Stadium's first race in 1949. Today, Modified greats like Junior Miller and the third generation Myers Family (Burt and Jason) carve there way around the same tight turns as the legends before them.
Speed51.com's Matthew Dillner was the man behind Totally NASCAR's Bowman Gray story.
"I love Short Track racing," says Dillner. "I have been to Daytona, Darlington and Indy but no current-day track means more to me than Bowman Gray."
"Every race fan should attend this place at least once in their lifetime. It has such an aura of history and presents today's fans with a special brand of 'bump and bang' old fashioned racing. It reminds me of a place I grew up at... Islip Speedway in New York."
