August 04 - Stunt Double Died

Nascar driver and stuntman Neil Castles died, he was 88. 

Castles made 498 Cup Series starts while also working as a movie stuntman and actor. He raced Elvis' 1967 Dodge Charger in the movie 'Speedway'. 

The movie had bad reviews by critics who felt it was an outdated type of film and that Elvis's talents weren't used properly. But the racing scenes were more realistic than earlier movies about the sport mostly because of all the actual race videos used. MGM installed cameras in Neil Castles' car to film scenes during the World 600.
