Then and Now
Check out this great photo of Hershel McGriff passing another car along a narrow twisted mountain road in the 1950 La Carrera Panamericana on his way to the big win but more importantly notice the fact they are on a dirt road and no guard rails too boot. This road looks like many such gravel/dirt roads I grew up racing on.
