Racing Re-Watches from Last Word On Motorsport

Racing Re-watches
DARLINGTON, SC - MARCH 16, 2003: Ricky Craven edged Kurt Busch by .002 of a second in the 2003 Carolina Dodge Dealers 400, to post the closest finish in NASCAR Cup Series history. The two waged an amazing fender-banging duel during the final laps to please the estimated crowd of 55,000. (Photo by ISC Archives via Getty Images)

Dear readers,

It’s a confusing time. It really is.

It’s a fast moving one. The news cycle is constantly refreshing.

At the same time, a week ago seems like a month ago.

We want to help get through that, and maybe give ourselves a little bit of relief in the process.

We intend to keep you updated whenever live racing returns to tracks across the nation, hopefully that being sooner rather than later. Fans can stay updated by visiting the site or following our Twitter account at @RacingVault.

For the time being, however, we intend to bring you a variety of unique content, including the new series that we are announcing below.

Racing Re-Watches from Last Word On Motorsport

Some of our motorsport writers are taking it upon themselves over the down-time to re-visit some of the most iconic, or maybe most random races that we can find.

The series will stretch across different series including NASCAR, IndyCar, Formula 1, the World of Outlaws, and more – especially if the shut down period is dragged out to a harsher distance.

Tonia Whitfield started her projects with a look back to an F1 race all the way back from 1968 in the year’s Canadian Grand Prix. I looked at Talladega race from 2001 – in my defense, I was three years old.

We hope this gives you just a little something to take your mind off things.

If there’s a race you want one of us to write about, leave a comment here or tweet us. Maybe we can go back to debating trivial racing topics during this truly trying time.

Enjoy the racing re-watches.

And thank you for reading.
