'You Don't Need a Million' Stock Cars Riding Tide By MURRAY OLDERMAN NEW YORK - (NBA) Bill France can measure the progress in stock car racing in this country by the moon, and the fact he no longer has to consult lunar tables before he stages an event. Bill is the. big, ambling gent who founded and runs the National Association of Stock Car Auto Racing (NASCAR). He's concurrently the president of the Day- tons Beach (Fla.) Speedway, where they have a 400- mile Firecracker event coming up July 4. Before that 2'A-mile banked oval was built, Bill couldn't do a thing without the full moon. His long shadow on the midnight sands wasn't a local menace. They used to run Daytona events on the beach, and because the full moon has an effect on the tides, Bill had to wait until just the right time of month to be assured of the widest possible beach for racing. * * * There's t Daytona 590 in late February !whleh attracts upwards of 80,000 stock car nuts (and bolts) since Bill's lunar emancipation. This year, for the first time, he has finalized th« "500" for the last Sunday In FebrU' ary and let the tide ba damned. He thinks the set date will give him a race that eventually rivals Indianapolis' 500-mile Memorial Day classic. For one thing, there's .a greater affinity between stock car racing and the plebian populate. "It's«typ»ofr«ing t "«* plains Bill, "boys' can participate in without having a millionaire backer. It's open to anybody who has the de- tin to b* • MM drivof ud doesn't have a million dollars. • "The fans like it, too. Everybody sitting in the stands —even if they don't know' the driver—can at least cheer for their own brand of car. So we have a built- in rooting section with all these millions of car owners." * + * Amazingly, the stock cars —and everyone has to have an engine that came off the production line—go faster than the whining monsters you see at Indianapolis. That's because of the track, whose curves are longer and banked 31 degres (against 11 degrees at indy). For instance, last year's Firecracker 400 was won at an average speed of 153 miles per hour, or 10 miles an hour faster than Graham Hill toured the Indianapolis brickyard. The other day, driver Paul Goldsmith took a Chevrolet down the stretch at a speed of 176 miles an hour, with no cops in sight. If there are no crackups, France anticipates a winning time of 160 miles an hour in this year's Firecracker 400, and that includes at least three pit stops for each ear. + * + Richard Petty drives a Plymouth and earned $132,000 a year ago. David Pearson, "the current leader, wheels a Dodge. France sees them identified some day in the Willie Mays-John Unitas syndrome. "If it hadn't been for Yankee Stadium," he argues, "there wouldn't have been any big league baseball. That was its birth.. We've already got jor league speedways in NASCAR. Also, Atlanta's running a 300-mile Indy ..championship car event on June 26. Charlotte has a big mile-and-a-half track." In Ontario, Calif., a group Is projecting a $25 million racing complex. -' * + - -+ When France made some grandstand additions at Daytona, he told Harley Earl, an associate, "We're gonna make the foundations strong enough so that we- can double-deck 'em." "No, Bill," advised Harley, "make them strong enough for triple decking. Twtnty year* from now, MHiwbody'll still bt racing around this speedway, and your audience will come from 300 million people in- dead of 175 million."
