That's young  crew chief, Dougie Richert in the straw cowboy hat talking to Dale Earnhardt. The team is wearing ther blue Wrangler practice day / qualifying day shirts as opposed to yellow race day shirts. RJ Reynolds' Winston Racing Manager T. Wayne Robertson is barely visible on the far right above the roof of the Earnhardt car. The fellow sporting the visor was the latest traveling minister to the drivers - Bill Baird - succeeding Bill Frasier (who was also a Richard Petty souvenirs guru before Jim Wigglesworth) and preceding Max Helton and his Motor Racing Outreach. This particular minister always flew first class and ate in the finest restaurants on the circuit. He raised a lot of eyebrows.
