I am Jervie Davis 's grandson,and I am so glad that I found. All this info from when he raced!!!!! Thank you very much for this page

Johnny Hand at Little River
Little River operated from 1966-1971. Johnny Hand #40 is followed by Charles Guyton, Chadbourn, NC in the #5. Charles' brother, Randy is the current promoter of Dublin (NC) Speedway.

Hop Holmes
The date on the photo of Hop's car is "April 67", and the hood reads: "292". In mid 1967, Ford drivers, led by Hop Holmes, decided the 292 engine was not capable of competing with the Chevy's and their potent 283's, and staged a boycott at Little River, when LRR officials refused to allow Hop's 289-equipped Ford. With the abundance of area-tracks, Hop quickly found a welcoming party at the Leland (NC) Raceway and went on to win many races at Leland. The 289 was soon allowed, everywhere, and the Ford cars were much more competitive. This photos shows Hop's sponsors: "Dub's Tinker Shop" and "Jack's Automotive".

Jack, thank you so much for sharing the link to your page. These photos are so wonderful, so much fun to see. I know that my dad, Jimmy Ingram, raced at Columbia in the very early days, in the 3rd Southern 500, and other places - I just don't know where. If you run across pictures of that #12 car that's in my albums - particularly good shots are of Daddy at Upper Marlboro near Baltimore in the "early career" album, I'd sure love to see them. I posted your link on the Cheraw Speedway page. Thank you again for sharing.
