I also ate 15 hot dogs in one day at Martinsville back in the mid 70's!

I heard Mr. Earles tell the story about how he got the Woods Brothers started in racing. He said a Virgina State trooper stopped him and wanted to search his car.  He "had no interest in that so I left" The trooper in pursuit.  Clay said they went down in a hollow that had a bridge at the bottom.  He made it across the bridge but the trooper hit it, totaling the police car.  Glenn and Leonard bought the wrecked police car and built thier first race car.  That's how Clay Earles got the Woods Brothers started in racing!  Don't know how true it was but Clay had a great time telling it!

Clay was one of the finest track owners ever. Very friendly, always a smile, and proud to say my friend. Although Clay has gone to a much better venue, he will be remembered as one of the earliest pioneers of Nascar Racing.
Thanks

He was one Hell Of a Poker Player on Getting That Track.

Great promotor and he liked a good hotdog as well as anyone. That is one thing that the speedway is known for there Jessie Jones hotdogs.
