    Re: Gearhead Guys You Should Know: Cale Yarborough

    Come down on me like that, I'd have shoved him up into the guard rail on purpose. I actually saw this one live. I think I was 12. I remimber having the Cale Yarbourgh Purolator stock car model. Can't remimber if it was before or after that race.

          Cale was the first Cup owner I worked for when I moved down here ('94). Stayed out of the shop and let the crew chief run things. Wouldn't use his time to go north of the Mason-Dixon line for a race, but did go to Indy for the inaugural race. He was a hell of a driver. vic

            Cale Yarborough and Lee Roy Yarbrough. I used to get them mixed up. The first a very inspiring story and the second -- yet to be told here but a good write up a while back in one of the mainstream car mags (Car and Driver???) -- exceptionally sad.

              It would have been great to go see a NASCAR race in those days.

                I remember watching the Daytona 500 in 1981, or maybe 82. Cale had the network's in car camera that race and won it. Heck of a show.

                    I remember watching that race on TV in my early teens, great entertainment.

                      Cale Yarborough.

                      That's a NASCAR driver's name if there ever was one.

                      It was cool when he was on the Dukes of Hazzard, and was winding out on that white Charger.
