    You have the globe which every dirt guy out there wants. Then you had pennsboro a place that for whatever reason brought guys from far and wide. I may be wrong but I don't know of another race that would draw the cars that those 2 races would draw.

    I believe it was $2000. It never paid more than $3000 until it jumped to $10,000 in 1981.

    Grand daddy doesn’t mean biggest. It means oldest.

    World is the original, the first big late model race. It gets the title.

    “The Granddaddy Of Them All” is the nickname for the Rose Bowl. I remember hearing Keith Jackson say it for decades. Anyone else who uses it, stole it from the Rose Bowl.
