Yes stock car racing was born from the Moonshiners running away from the revenoors. Then they would get together on weekends and see who was the fastest and the best driver. This is where many of the early NASCAR drivers came from.

Years ago I watched a movie "Thunder Road" and it was about the shine runners in the deep South.

I actually saw that movie in a theater when I was a young boy. My father took me to see it. I remember Robert Mitchum as a young man played the part of the shine runner. Even then I liked the part about them hopping up the cars to outrun the revenoors. It was funny the same garage that was modifying the Govt. cars was hot rodding the shine runners. I still remember the line in the movie where the guy in the garage says, "yea but it ain't gonna outrun that one".  Wink
