Vroom Vroooooom

I purchased ten vintage NASCAR slides a couple of days ago. I have no idea were these were taken. It's obviously a track over one mile long. I was hoping it might be Charlotte but I see no dog leg or grass on what appears to be the front stretch. I wonder if it's Dover? All I do know is that there is a good chance that these were taken in 1977 because the car in front here is Bobby Allison in his #12 Matador and from what I have found so far he drove that number on that particular model in 1977. That's Bobby at the far left of this photo. I'll be posting a series of these over the next few days.

I am wondering if the pictures are from this race.

Here's Richard Petty having some problems with his car. He still won a lot of races in the late 70's so narrowing it down by crappy races by Petty will help me figure out where this race was run.

Ed, I had an oldtimer who filmed NASCAR in the 1970s and he said he believes these pics are from Atlanta in the mid 1970s.
