THE DETROIT NEWS, Detroit, Michigan, February 27, 1961
* NASCAR National Association for Stock Car Auto Racing
* 3rd Annual Daytona 500 race
* Marvin Panch winner
This 36 page newspaper has a three column headline on the front page of the sport's section (page 21): "2 Leaders Forces Out; Panch Wins Stock '500'" with related photo (see images).
This tells of the 3rd ever Daytona 500 race in which driver Marvin Panch won.
Due to the lack of popularity of NASCAR back then, reporting of these races are either non-existence in most newspapers or are small in comparison of other sports of the time. Nonetheless, still a historic 1st report.
Other news of the day. Some small binding holes along the spine, otherwise good.
