Cotton Owens 61 Pontiac “Dirt” version
Posted by Murphy on Tuesday, April 03, 2018 5:02 PM

Cotton has to be in my personal top 5 list. His shop was about 30 miles up the road and I remembering seeing him every Saturday night back in the 90’s at Cherokee speedway with his 3 grandsons who raced 4cyl there. I like to think this is the look after a race at Spartanburg fairgrounds back in the day.  The kit is the Moebius Joe Weatherly version with Powerslide decals. Hope you enjoy looking.

Excellent job, Murphy. My dad took me to the Richmond 250 in 1961, so I probably saw this car run. It was dirt back then. I remember the track announcer saying his name. It was my first Nascar race to see in person. I was ten years old. I remember Joe Weatherley won and my favorite driver Rex White came in 3rd if I remember correctly. That was a long time ago.

Don't know how I missed this one. What a great looking stocker. It's interesting to see a dirt car, and the weathering really brings it alive. Very nicely done.
