Besides Motor Trend, Car & Driver, Road & Track, Hot Rod, Jacques Duval, there was a syndicated show hosted by Bud Lindemann called Car & Track.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Car_and_Track


Car and Track was America's first nationally syndicated auto racing  and car test television show. Produced by Car and Track Productions, it was hosted and produced by Bud Lindemann , a famous race commentator of the time. After the TV series ended, Bud and his son David Lindemmann continued to film many types of racing. They compiled one of the most important film libraries of the early days of NASCAR. Car and Track was based in Grand Rapids, Michigan. This allowed them to have close relationships with Detroit automotive manufacturers and suppliers.
It is believed to have run from 1967 to 1975, with 80 or more episodes originally airing on CBS . In later years, the cable television station Speedvision (which in 2002 became the Speed Channel ), aired re-runs from approximately 1996 to 2002. In 2005, network executives revamped the old program, turning it into a primetime NASCAR  history highlight show retitled Back in the Day , and hosted by NASCAR driver Dale Earnhardt, Jr.  [1]  It now had a modern, more mass appeal look, though only highlighting select NASCAR racing footage the show carried. The ending of the show does pay homage to the original ending, showing the original host Bud Lindemann's goodbye quote. The quotes varied among episodes but usually stated, "..and drive safely, won't you? All the pros do."
Aside from the show's large attention to NASCAR racing, it also included various other American racing including NHRA  drag racingUSAC  stock car and Champ Car  racing (Champ Car at that time implied USAC) and sprint car racing  on paved and dirt ovals. Also featured were IHRA  Funny Car  and Top Fuel  drag racing events. One or more new-car road tests per episode were also featured. The racing library was not limited to automobiles, they even filmed snowmobile racing.
The series used stock music cues, most of them also used by NFL Films , for its varied features, such as in coverage of the 1974 Daytona 500 , which used the Jack Trombey  track "Military Attache," a cue that opened NFL Films' 1974 Pittsburgh Steelers season review film . The show's 1968 opening theme (using footage from Rockingham  and Daytona  shot in 1965 and footage of one of Andy Granatelli 's turbine Indycars at Milwaukee  in 1968) was a variation of Trombey's track "Rhythmical Interruption No. 2." A track used frequently was the Peter Reno  track "Recoil." In the later years, the original music came from numerous southern sources with everything from country to styles that are reminiscent of Jimmy Buffett.


Let's enjoy some vintage road tests from Car and Track.
