# 3. Before Wendell Scott's death, he received an tall modern made race trophy?
Have you seen any close-up photos of this trophy??

# 4. Has anyone asked or checked out Buck Baker's race trophies for the original Speedway Park - Jacksonville, Fla. race trophy??

# 5. Buck Baker is dead and you can't asked him!!!
Has anyone asked Buck Baker's family members or son, Buddy Baker for the original Speedway Park - Jacksonville, Fla. race trophy??

During this time the winner of the race would get the money, get the race trophy, and get to kissed the beauty queen in victory lane.
Most of the married race drivers whom won the race, didn't kissed the beauty queen because it would upset their wives.
One or two did kissed the beauty queen.
This was mostly for the unmarried race drivers.
Wendell Scott, who was black, whom was happily married at the time, when he won the Speedway Park - Jacksonville, Fla. race.
Most likely Wendell Scott wouldn't kiss the white beauty queen in victory lane.
But at that time even an photo of an black man with his race trophy and white woman smiling and standing in victory lane would be too much for NASCAR!!!

This was 3 years before first interracial kiss in television history!!!

In 1966, NBC shocked audiences when "Star Trek" episode 67, "Plato's Stepchildren," aired.
In this episode, Captain Kirk, a white man, and Lieutenant Uhura, a black woman, kissed each other, creating what now is considered to be the first interracial kiss in television history.

NASCAR should have an investigation on what happened to the original Speedway Park - Jacksonville, Fla. race trophy??

The original Speedway Park - Jacksonville, Fla. race trophy should be back in Wendell Scott's Trophy Case or Museum !!!:applause: :cheers:
