View Full Version : Finished A Cool NASCAR TTM Project!

Hey guys,

Couple months ago I found a really cool photo of what's probably the greatest moment in NASCAR history, the fist fight that occurred right after the last lap of the 1979 Daytona 500. I first sent it out to Donnie Allison who signed it and returned it, then his brother Bobby who also signed and returned it, and then I sent it to Cale Yarborough and I received it back signed today. He also inscribed it with "To Ryan, 1979 Daytona 500 Last Lap Fist Fight", per my request. Really excited to finish this project, gonna' try to find a nice frame for the photo. That last lap of the '79 500 was the moment that really put NASCAR on the map being the first race broadcast on live TV and what not. Donnie and Cale were fighting to win the race, and coming out of turn 2 Cale tried to make his move to take the lead, he lost control a bit, and next thing you know he and Donnie went in the wall. Then Richard Petty, D.W., and A.J. Foyt came around to try to get the win, and Richard came out victorious. Donnie's brother Bobby came over to give his brother a ride back to the garage then he and Cale started yelling, Cale threw his helmet, and the rest.....is television and NASCAR history.
