Great stuff Al.
I just finished reading the book "Cheating".
It's on NASCAR drivers, owners and crews "bending" the rules from day one thru 2006 or so.
Junior Johnson was one of the major "players" in the book.
He sure does have the "don't mess with me look" doesn't he?

Notice in 5th place was Coatesville, Pa. driver Buzz Woodward in his #90 Ford. He raced with the PENMAR late models and entered quite a few NASCAR races. He would later race in the Semi-Late division in Central Pa.
Another familiar name in 16th place was Ray Fanning driving a #200 1957 Chevy which was a team car to 17th place finisher Jimmy Findley in the black #100 Chevy (which also would see action in the Semi-Late division with Fanning driving).
