The 90 car is a Junie Donlavey Ford Torino, so would be mid 1970's NASCAR.

It could be this: https://www.racing-reference.info/race/ ... onal_500/W

I'm not sure if the track is Charlotte, Atlanta or different clips edited together.
I've lost all my Road & Track videos so I can't double check.

I recognised the Donlavey spin, it's in this race at around 9 minutes.
