Never seen this film before, not the 60 race but the 61 race.
Looks like only 2 Valiants, but still beat that pontiac!

Nice Stan, thanks for sharing!!!
a few things to Note:

- Lee Petty has some skookum Safety gear (just a T Shirt with short sleeves) :-o

- Fuel filler relocated up to the top of the Left rear 1/4 Panel.... for quicker fills??!?! maybe - To keep the fuel from sloshing outtta the tank and onto the track??? yes.


- I till love watching them go backwards / anti clockwise on the high bank - Puts the driver right into the wall..

- would the Saab's have had a 4 cylinder for this era?

For those who avoid Fecebook, the '61 compact race can also be seen on YouTube here.

I like watching this video..

Reminds me of the Toad racer @ NCM..

I like how they redid the file filler to the Top of the quarter panel just behind / Under the rear window.... LESS slosh out at that position.

If you look at this Hi res Picture Carefully,

You can see the Front Sway Bar that the teams Added, I am not sue that the Factory ever had Sway Bars on the Toads.
