Lime Rock has seen it all.

On July 25, 1959 U.S.A.C. held two 20-lap heats, with a 60-lap finale. Roger Ward won the pole, but George Constantine, in a DBR-1 Aston Martin sports car, took the lead at the start and went on to win the first heat, with Ward right behind. Ward took the second heat, followed by Constantine .

Chuck Daigh was there, driving a Maserati Formula One car. Ward was following Daigh, right on his bumper. There is a right-hand turn that leads to a downhill, connected to the front straightaway, and every time they came down to that right-hand turn Daigh would drop his left-side wheels off the track and throw shit all over Ward. Ward finally passed him, then chased down Constantine in his Aston Martin and went on to win the race. This event was to be deemed the most popular road-racing event in history, and was filmed by an ametuer from the infield. It was fimed with a low quality camera, and is not perfect quailty, but this is the only known footage of this historical event.

Also on this DVD is 1960s Sports Car racing, 1972 Trans-am Series, United Stock Car Club, 1950s Antique Car Parade, Hill Climbs from Keene N.Y. , 1964 A.M.E.C. Ice Racing with some real cool in-car camera footage.
