After being planted outside the track at Columbia Speedway on opening night in 1966, veteran driver Dink Widenhouse informed car owner Marion Cox that he was hanging it up as a driver. A teary-eyed Cox announced later that Billy Scott of Union, S. C. would take over the driving chores. Scott went on to win track championships at several tracks before being replaced by Haskell Willingham in the Cox Ford.
