Just a little project I've been working on.

Post by flyingturns89 on Mon Aug 22, 2011 7:42 am

So, a few months ago, during a discussion with some friends, a question popped into my mind that I just couldn't shake. It involved the first ever NASCAR race. The question was, "What are the drivers in the first race doing now?" So, I did a little digging and found some things. Unfortunately, it is discouraging news. Of the 33 drivers that were in the field, 21 are no longer living. Some died relatively young, as young as 37, others made into their 80s and 90s. However, there is a glimmer of hope. Currently, I am still looking for records of death for the remaining 12 drivers, so they may still be alive. I'll try to keep updates on any new breaks in the project.

The same can't be said for Formula 1. All of the 24 drivers entered in the Grand Prix are now deceased, the last in 2008.
