I got a gift of a "NASCAR fact a day" calendar in the off-season.

I would not have bought this myself, so keep your snide comments to yourself :-P

Anywho, besides the incredible amount of inaccuracies (did you know that NHIS is a 2 mile track?) and out of date pictures (really, the Smokin Joe's car?), May 22 was an important day. The fact?

"NASCAR sanctions two open-wheel racing series: the NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour and NASCAR Whelen Southern Modified Tour."

The picture on there is of the Hillbilly Racing 79 leading a pack of cars...and is from when Mr. Civali drove it.
