Even 10 years after his death Dale Earnhardt’s influence is still being felt in NASCAR It happened 10 years ago on the last lap of NASCAR's traditional season-opening Daytona 500.

Simply the boost

For three years, Can-Am was McLaren's property. Then Porsche and Penske turned up with a 917 and a turbocharger. Preston Lerner recalls the car that changed the series George Follmer had just clinched the Trans-Am championship in the middle of the 1972 season when he got a phone call, out of the blue, from his one-time boss, Roger Penske.

Bobby Allison: stars & swipes
