Here's what's left of the convertedMallory's Speed Shop building on North Boulevard in Richmond, sponsor of the Herman Beam / Larry Thomas car in the photo.
In 1973, Mallory's Speed Shop sponsorship could be found on the quarter panels of the Chevelle
driven by Winston Cup Rookie of the Year, Bill Dennis, also from Richmond (Glen Allen).
At the back of Mallory's Speed Shop was the equally famed Hoehns & Eanes (H&E) Automotive machine shop and garage
(it later moved to Chamberlayne Ave.
) that turned out the power plants for the Sonny Hutchins driven Emanuel Zervakis cars, among others. Today a McDonald's burger joint sits where horsepower, not cowpower once ruled.
It was a Hoehns & Eanes powerplant under the hood of Sonny Hutchins' Zervakis Monte Carlo thatoutdragged Richard Petty to turn 1 at Martinsville and led for 70+ laps!
