Default When Men were Men (And Nuts)...VIDEO

When Men were Men (And Nuts)
Back before NASCAR, seatbelts, and I guess common sense or even fear.
This is absolutely nuts. Vintage film of race car crashes. No roll cages or seat belts or any safety gear.
Simply amazing footage! I wonder how many of these guys died!

And the fans and camera men are right beside the track ... crazy.
