I've put feelers out in various places and at various times on RR for a pic I'm trying to find.
In the 1979 NAPA National 500 at Charlotte, Henley Gray fielded a #19 Chevy sponsored by Natural Light beer. From what I've been able to research, the race was the second of only two times Natty Light has sponsored a Cup car. (The other time was the 79 World 600 with Glenn Jarrett. After months of searching, I FINALLY found a pic of Jarrett's car yesterday on ebay of all places.)
Cecil Gordon raced Gray's car to a 32nd place finish at Charlotte. The car only lasted about half the race before Cecil retired it with a bum clutch. That much I knew before last night. But in crawling through old newspapers, I learned Lennie Pond may actually have qualified the car 22nd. Pond ran a few races for Henley down the stretch of the 79 season so that makes a bit of sense to me. But I don't yet know why Cecil took over the wheel in the race vs. Lennie.
Bottom line, anyone have pics of this car from qualifying, testing, or the race?
Schaefer: It's not just for racing anymore.
