1966 Rebel 400
Victory Dance: A great overhead shot of what victory lane looked like at Darlington after the 1966 Rebel 400, won by Richard Petty. You can see Darlington Track President Bob Colvin in the suit near the front quarter panel, Miss Firebird Winkie Louise on the hood with Petty. Track Mascot Johnny Reb with the flag, Lee Petty just visible near the door, photographer T. Taylor with the NASCAR Int. patch on his back, and my good friend photographer Don Hunter just climbing up onto the concrete at the lower part of the frame.
Would love to be able to blow up part of that pic. That should be me in the back right corner, I think. There is a center spread in Stock Car Racing Magazine of me riding on the back of the convertible with our Plymouth 43 flag, Johnny Reb on the front, and Richard sitting on the back of the back seat. Great to see that picture. Brings back so many wonderful memories. Thanks for posting that. Tim
