Who was Earl Brooks?

Earl Brooks was a NASCAR Winston Cup Series driver whose career spanned from 1962 to 1979.

His career came at a time where NASCAR was less organized than it is today and drivers independently owned their vehicles from the multi-car teams that emerged during the 1970s and 1980s. Brooks would befriend Wendell Scott who would become the first African-American to drive in NASCAR.

Brooks experienced "top five" finishes at the 1963 South Boston 400, the 1969 Fireball 300, and the 1971 Nashville 420. His first "top ten finish" came in 1962 race at New Asheville Speedway while his final "top ten finish" came at the 1971 Georgia 500.
