In the first picture, all 4 of the cars in the first 2 rows are Fords. In the second, the car closest to the camera is a Pontiac.

And catch-fence ha-ha. Just been upstairs going through old race programs. Dad's program from the first Southern 500 is a little worn but, still in one piece. Just looked at about forty or so but couldn't find the one in question. There are years and years of Stock Car magazines in the attic but it's 100 out side. Am not going in there!!!

I didn't want to mention the web because that makes things too easy. But the name of the race would have been the Rebel 300, 400, or 500 depending on the race length of that particular year. And yes, all of the old racing programs upstairs have the Confederate Union Jack flag featured prominently on the cover...

Fast Freddie (Lorenzen) started on the pole in the Holman-Moody owned Ford. Marvin Panch on the outside driving the Wood Brothers number 21 Ford. Junior Johnson survived to get the victory.
