THE WAY IT WAS!
The old wooden fence. A tiger wreck in the early 80's.
The view from the back stretch in the early days. The tigers in the late 60's.

HOW THINGS CHANGE!
Flagging in the early days at Thunder Road. Flagging today.
Tigers evolved into Late Models in the mid-70's - Racing action coming down Thunder Roads front stretch. Todays Late Models coming down that same front stretch.
