Bobby Allison was a regular Modified driver before he went on to great things in Grand Nationals. Many times he competed against Ed.
Notice Bobby’s “full-face” helmet – this must have been one of the first used in an enclosed car.
Notwithstanding Perk Brown’s name over the door, this is Allison in the well-known William Mason #45.
1967 – Martinsville, after a 100-lap win. That is owner of #11 Jack Tant on the left and track owner Clay Earles on the right.
Pete’s on the inside in the #1, Bobby outside in the #2.
1982 – Thompson. This was taken at a match race organized (and competed in) by Ron Bouchard.
Both former drivers of the William Mason #45.
