Wow times have sure changed!! See the father & son running on the berm at top of picture and all of the folks standing right on the berm exiting turn four!! Man now you can't even get close to the cars when they're in the paddock. What ever happened to the good ole day's? I used to ride in the package tray of my mom's Falcon, and Fairlane, and dad's Pontiacs. :D

Todays kids ride in car seats and wear helmets when riding their bikes. In my day we would have wrecked any kid with a helmet to see if it worked.
