I think we can all agree that rivalries are important to all sports, and racing definitely has had its fair share throughout the years. What are some of your favorite rivalries?

Wow, where to start, a lot of these won’t be familiar to some but these are my favorites from 33 years in the region 1. The obvious, Porky snd Hank Edwards, their battles were epic and fierce. 2. Porky and Jack Pennington, they hell hated each other, Jack was one of the very few that could really get to Porky. The last real rival in the late stages of his career for Porky was Jeffrey Tyndall, I often thought that Porky viewed Tyndall like Earnhardt did Gordon. 4. Marvin Lester and Timmy Tyner, two super street guys who left it all on the track every night 5. Rocky Boahn and a Mark Sutton, Junior Latr model drivers who put on some of the most intense racing ever in that class. 6. Ellis Ward snd Duck Raynor in the old six cylinder class, the sheet metal on those two cars had to be replaced every week, most of the time between Friday night and Saturday afternoon. I could go on but that’s just a taste of what rivilries were like in the 80s snd 90s in our area. It’s a shame dollars and cents have taken away this aspect of our sport and made the drivers scared to scratch a wrap
@threevs_dad I think healthy rivals help our sport and agree there is some that missing today.
