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


Stock Car Racing History

Great photos, Dennis. That had to be terribly distracting for your Dad watching his windshield crack and wondering if it would blow out even when he backed off.

Stock Car Racing History

Friday, February 16, 2018 marks the 44th anniversary of the historic Daytona 3-peat by Bill Dennis and Junie Donlavey. The Richmond, Virginia owner and Glen Allen, Virginia driver were a potent combination in the Permatex 300.

Zion XRoads Speedway, Hilltop Speedway & Central Va. Raceway Were All the Same Track on U.S. 250


Historic Speedways and Ghost Tracks

That Winged $ car in the background of the Bob Dobyns photo belonged to the legendary Bobby Glass who passed in 2016 at age 82. Glass was a terror at Beltsville and Old Dominion Speedways.

Hey, Dennis... seeing the photo and name of Bob Dobyns (they spelled it wrong) in a 1954 edition of the Charlottesville Daily Progress for winning at Cavalier Speedway brought back a lot of memories. Around 1968-1969, when promoter Emanuel Zervakis brought the NASCAR Late Model Sportsman division to Richmond's Southside Speedway, it was Bob Dobyns who showed my buddy Frank Buhrman and me the quickest route from our west end Richmond homes to Southside Speedway. Following the rig towing the aging Dobyns' extremely ugly racecar, we crossed Hugenot Bridge, then turned right on U.S. 60 before turning left at the school in Midlothian as we learned a new shortcut to Southside for which we were always in Mr. Dobyns' debt. Here's the Dobyns Late Model Sportsman at Beltsville Speedway a year or two before our encounter.

AL Cothran had many wonderful photos taken in the 50s-60s at the Richmond Fairgrounds dirt track. One of out PR secretaries at Richmond International Raceway  (JoAnne) was good friends and one day in the earl;ym 90s he brought in tons of just amazing photos. It would be wonderful if they could be published, whoever has them.

That was quite a mix of cars at what would turn out to be the final GA event. Congrats to your Dad on his 1972 Championship.
