Stock Cars Stock cars have come a long way since the days of the old jalopy but many race fans will tell you the vintage stock cars put on some of the best fender banging action of all-time.

Default Rick Carelli - Brett Scruggs #51 Ltd LM

Rick Carelli collects more trophies during 1986 racing action at Denvers Lakeside Speedway. This car was owned by Brett Scruggs, who also bank rolled cars for Mike Opperman. This was another car that Carelli flat footed around the 1/5th mile asphalt oval.

It seems that Rick was trying to get around the track in a totally different style, mimiking the antics of the Joey Chitwood drivers who used to roam the country, doing shows, driving their cars on two wheels around the entire race tracks.

Thanks to Mark "Kappy" Kaplan for these great shots.
