Oldest NASCAR Race Winner and Race Car Will Reunite

Ponce Inlet, FL — Catch a special Facebook Live broadcast of the Legends of Racing Radio Show with host Buz McKim at noon (ET) Thursday (Aug. 20) when he welcomes 94-year-old Paul Goldsmith, the oldest NASCAR race winner. McKim is the former historian at the NASCAR Hall of Fame in Charlotte, N.C.

Goldsmith, a former USAC and NASCAR driver, will be reunited with NASCAR’s oldest surviving race car that he drove more than 60 years ago. He won the final auto race at the famous Daytona Beach Road Course in 1958 and was the only driver to win that course both in a stock car and on a motorcycle.

Goldsmith will reminisce about his experiences from that era before the car is presented for permanent display at the Motorsports Hall of Fame of America Museum in Daytona Beach.

The Thursday program is in addition to McKim’s weekly Legends of Racing show each Friday, and will take place at Racing’s North Turn restaurant — on the site of the beach course’s North Turn.
