It is. Good call :thumbsup:

And according to Wikipedia, Nazareth was a dirt oval up until 1987.
Nazareth Speedway was an auto racing facility near Nazareth in the Lehigh Valley region of Pennsylvania which operated from 1910 to 2004 in two distinct course configurations. In its early years, it was a dirt twin oval layout. In 1987 it was reopened as a paved tri-oval that measured just slightly under 1 mile.

In that case we can probably narrow it down to the 14 Modified races listed here.

I believe it is Dave Pecko in 1998, though I can't find anything referring to a flip, just that he crashed. Also while video cameras weren't the best quality in 1998, the quality of that video gives an early 90s vibe...

I think the number ends in a 3 (just by slowing the footage down)
