GT 200 - May 3, 1969


Stock Car Racing History

Dad told this story about this race. It was the first time in the Cougar and the first time at this track. It was only his second year driving on asphalt. He had a little case of nerves and did not want to get in anybodies way so in the first practice he said he spent more time looking in the mirror than the windshield. He was all over the track. After practice Jim Paschal wanted to know who that nut was in the 15 car? But by the time they qualified dad had it figured out and sat on the pole. And dad and Jim would become good friends.

Junie Donlavey / Bill Dennis 3rd Consecutive Daytona Permatex 300 Win - Feb. 16, 1974


Stock Car Racing History

Here is a picture of the window net I have. The netting is a little heavier than volleyball netting, almost like basketball netting but not as stretchy. Not sure when NASCAR went to all webbing on the window nets but I ran similar to this in the 80's on short tracks.

Mr. Garrett,

If my memory is correct the #00 had a Holman-Moody window net. It had white netting and webbing around the outside and the horizontal webbing that runs just above the door had a H-M label sown in it. I still have one that may have been the one used on this car, at the very least it is just like it in shape and color. The top front corner of the net was angled to fit along the A post. This was done to get the front of the net forward enough to also help keep the drivers hand and forearm inside the car.
