do you have any old photo from fayetteville motor speedway in the late 70's if you have how do i get to them


Marion Cox b/w #50
Gentlemen, Regarding the 1959/1960 seasons at Rambi: Did Dink Widenhouse drive his #B29 often at Rambi, or did he mostly pilot the Cox's #50? What model year would the black and white coach be...1937, 38, 39, or 1940 Ford? Was there a year model coach that car builders preferred? I see the pic of him driving the #50 in 1963 at Rambi, but I'm especially interested in the 59/60 seasons. Thanks... PS - I need to meet up with Mr. Williamson (and Jack) to get the Little River film footage to him



Rocky - Most of what I cover here on CRP is the 50's, 60's, and very early 70's. Try searching at Local Race Chat ( www.localracechat.com/ )for late 70's info on Fayetteville. ......Jack

Steve - Dink drove the White/Blue/Red #B-29 at Coastal Speedway in MB in 1955-56-57. He also raced it at Rambi up until 1962 when he got the Marion Cox ride after Bunk Moore was supended from Nascar..... Jack

#50
Jack, Do you have any idea who would have driven the Marion Cox black/white #50 coach during the summer of 1960 and what year model it was? I'm very interested because my dad (when I was 4 years old) put me in the car while it was parked on the front stretch after a victory and I clung to the roll bar as the driver drove it across the apron into the pits. A vivid memory for me even though the driver never said a word to me. Thanks for all your answers! Steve



Steve - I don't "remember" the Black 50 before 1962. Marion Cox sometimes took 2 or 3 cars to the track, but I remember them as all being red/white before 1962. Could your Dad have put you in the Black 50 in 1962? Check out the 1962 shot I have of the Black 50 with Marion driving the car back to the pits with a kid in the car hanging on to the roll bars.
