My dad took me to my first motor race in '52 or '53, when I was about 7 or 8. It was a stock car event and I think it might have been at the Milwaukee mile. The surface as I remember it was not paved. We were in the stands at the apex of a 180 degree bend marked out with half-buried tires. One of these came loose and flipped over one of the leading cars.
What I seem to recollect is that it was run clockwise. Is this at all possible?
