Starting off the poem depicting a car flying off a pier "for a year without gaining or losing altitude" (pg 386 stanza 1 line 3). If you have ever heard of someone describing a major car crash, where they took off into the air this may sound very similar. An uncle of mine once told the story of when he himself was in a crash that had completely flipped his car. In this story he described how when you're in the air for a brief second it felt as if nothing matters at all and almost forgot where he was. Even though it was only for one second it felt as if time had stretched out that second to the end of time.

True stories abound of good old boys transporting loads of illegal moonshine in their souped up 34 Fords, trying to elude the revenue agents as they drove without headlights along dark twisting dirt roads at speeds exceeding 120 miles per hour. The need to prove who had the fastest car led to weekend races at tracks carved out of pastures and corn fields. Bill France saw the need for formally organized competition and his efforts led to the founding in 1948 of the National Association for Stock Car Auto Racing (NASCAR), motorsport’s preeminent stock car racing organization. In the tumultuous half-century since, stock car racing has evolved from a band of hell-bent-for-leather drivers who raced for gas money on tracks primarily in the South, to millionaire owners and drivers who race at tracks across the country from North Carolina to California. NASCAR ends its season with a nationally televised black-tie awards banquet in New York
Between 255-360 different cars were used for the “General Lee” because they wrecked so many in the show (www.neatorama.com).

For someone who attends the races every Saturday racing or not I have never stopped to think back in the 1920 's how a car was set up. In many pictures of cars back in the day you see them without roll cages, window nets, good seat belts, or even a helmet. Safety of race cars has changed drastically over the past 95 years. Cars started to evolve by the increase in scientific study and some died over the years. One man 's death that everyone knew and loved changed NASCAR forever.
The roots of how the motor fueled back country racing series known as nascar began in the 1920 's with the rise in need for alcohol, and the increased punishment for getting caught with it, bootleggers had to upgrade their cars to evade the police while on their deliveries. With the souped up cars the bootleggers started to take pride in their driving skills and their mechanical skills because they were able to evade the police time after time and continue to bring in an immense amount of money. In order to evade the police alot of the bootleggers started to customize their vehicles to perform to a higher standard than a stock or regular car could do. They also made inventions to lighten the car and make it easier to evade the cops. One such invention is the rear view mirror, back in the 1920’s they would have a person riding shotgun which added weight and slow the car, so to reduce the weight they installed a mirror to show behind them without needing a person to tell them about a car coming.

My dad finally let me do one by myself on a customer’s car.
If you thought motorsports was an exclusively men’s world, then you need to wake up and see the hot girls reigning supreme on the race tracks. Admittedly, you are not alone in this misconception about raving being a man thing, probably because there are plenty of guys involved in the industry from mechanics, drivers and engineers to raving fans. However, there are many female racing drivers who are not only fast and successful but incredibly attractive too. Here are ten of the hottest female drivers dominating race tracks all over the world. Leilani Munter Leilani is a Minnesota-born girl who began racing in the Firestone Indy Circuit.
Porsche’s day as an independent luxury car company seemed to be over.

Brady was once again unsuccessful in this endeavor. In 1873, Brady was forced to file bankruptcy and sell off one of his studios in New York City. By 1894, Brady was forced to sell off all but one of his studios, the studio below his nephew 's home in Washington, DC. Brady’s nephew was kind enough to allow Brady to keep the studio without having to pay rent (Mathew Brady 's World - A Biographical Timeline). In late December of 1895, Brady was involved in a street car accident where he broke both of his legs.
