Dale Sr. & Rusty were best of friends & fieriest of competitors. Have you heard the story about Dale Sr. playing a prank on Rusty at a major race. (might have been Daytona) It seems as tho just before the drivers went to their cars & strapped in, Dale Sr. managed to place a can of sardines (partially opened) under Rusty's seat!! I guess the smell after very few laps was almost overwhelming. This was before the drivers had 'cool boxes' and full faced helmets. I can only imagine what those 'cooking' sardines must have smelled like after 2 or 3 hundred miles!!! After the race when the origin of the smell was found, Rusty approached Dale Sr., ...Dale just grinned & said "GOTCHA" ... (true story)
Rusty was here at the Iowa Speedway last weekend for the first of two Nationwide races at the track he designed/owns.
The track will host 2 Nationwide races, 2 truck series races, and in two weeks an IRL race.
Every race is a sellout which will put the track at #5 for the season/series in regards attendance.
The track is a 7/8 mile version of Richmond and the drivers love it.
