Comment for above photo:  Today we have live racing all over the TV and the internet...  Hell, we even have live racing of people pretending to be really racing....  Some of us do remember a time when the only shot we had at seeing racing on TV was pre-recorded segments on ABC's Wide World of Sports.  I'm not sure that's what's happening in the shot above, but since the first "live" Daytona wasn't until 1979 (broadcast on CBS) I'm thinking that the footage captured by the camera above probably was shown between Russian Weight Lifting, and a Track and Field Event!
