A Long racing history

From down Broad Street, those gathered at the Camden Archives and Museum on Tuesday morning could hear the roar of an engine as Bondy Long stepped on the gas of the 1964 No. 11 Bowani Racing Ford Galaxie which Ned Jarrett drove into victory lane on 14 occasions in NASCAR’s Grand National (now, Sprint Cup) Series. A chorus of cheers and more than a few well-wisher pulling out their cell phones to save the moment greeted Long as he stepped out of the car with a relieved look on his face.
