How the heck do we know this stuff?
The Old Days

First Radio Communications

Tim Flock's drove an Oldsmobile in the February 21, 1954 NASCAR Grand National event on Daytona's Beach-Road course. Flock wheeled the Ernest Woods-owned Olds to victory,
but was disqualified on a minor technicality
following post-race inspections.
Lee Petty was declared the official winner of the race.

Flock did contribute a slice of history in that event, becoming the first driver in NASCAR Grand National history to compete while in radio communication with his pit crew.
