This is Hershel McGriff entered as a Winston West car in the Cup season-ending race at Ontario for the LA Times 500. Was same race that Dale Earnhardt won his 1st title in his 1st race with Wrangler as his sponsor. Car obviously looks like a former Osterlund car; however, the listed car owner for it is John Kieper. I do wonder if Osterlund worked a deal with McGiff as a hedge for helping Dale win the title. Teams started entering an extra car with regularity in 1981 when Junior Johnson did so to help Darrell Waltrip. But Osterlund may have done it in 1980 albeit by leveraging the name of another "owner".
