All Episodes

This week in the first of what will be two installments of our interview, Chuck Bown remembers going Cup racing as a YOUNGster, winning championships in Winston West and Busch North, and the momentous move to the Busch Series with team owners Hubert and Jeff Hensley.

We then dig into the January 19, 1978 issue of Grand National Scene.

Chuck Bown parts ways with his Winston West team owner just two years after winning the division championship together. Darrell Waltrip gets a couple of prestigious awards and the writer of a letter to the editor mentions Scene’s extraordinarily humble beginnings.

Daytona announces its purse for the upcoming 1978 Daytona 500 … and it’s less than a half-million dollars. Writer Gene Granger turns in copy on the winner’s circle program, David Pearson … David Pearson AGAIN … and Bobby Allison.

Plus, we get a look at NASCAR independent driver J.D. McDuffie. NOTE: This show is not associated in any way with American City Business Journals, owner of the Scene brand.
