LD Ottinger's "Crate" Motor

Later to be NASCAR's Late Model Sportsman division National Champion in both 1975 & 1976, Newport, Tennessee's L.D. Ottinger is shown here in 1962 building a motor on a Coca-Cola crate readying for a race at Newport's old Tennessee-Carolina Speedway. This photo and clip appeared in the Newport (TN) Plain Talk in 1962 and was posted on the Jalopy Journal site by poster, lothiandon1940. I had the pleasure of handling the PR for LD's NASCAR Busch Series sponsor, Detroit Gasket in the late 80s. What a nice guy to work with.
