With Catamount's brave new world of late model sportsman racing in full swing, the track decided to go back to its only - recently - abandoned roots and host a NASCAR modified tour show in August of 1972. Probably in deference to the love many of the mod drivers had for Catamount, which had been in the All - Star League, which had hosted many a race for them to collect points, and around which the Milton citizenry had been very kind to the touring modified teams - the field attracted that night was quite large.
          I took a few photos that night, in failing light, with the world famous Kodak Instamatic camera, and they hadn't come out well at all. But now, with a better scanner, I have gotten them to look halfway decent. So, here are the teams I shot that night. MIlton may have loved them, but I found them to be very aloof and standoffish.
