Default When you had to "drive" the cars

Dirt track, full windshield, open helmet, goggles, full floors and firewalls, rear window, no ventalation, dust so thick you could not see 50 feet.
Photo says it all and this USAC driver won the event.

Crewman had to be real men as well.
No impact wrench here.
No aluminum 2 pump jack here.
Lugs had to be hand started on standard studs.
