Comment for above photo:  One of my top 5 sportsman cars of all time.  I don't ever remember seeing this car at East Windsor, but I sure do remember noticing in the early 70's at Flemington.  I think you guys offered up that it was a former Kenny Brightbill car.  Cool body... cool stance... great colors and lettering...  It was a great time to be a fan of dirt track racing!

When Billy changed the body to a Gremlin a few years later was also a awesome looking Sportsman car for that era.

I believe this hot rod (with the sedan body) was sold by Kenny Brightbill to Bob Toreky, which became his # 14.  It then went to Billy Matthews.
