|09.01.10||Kevin||Richie Evans won a Stafford race that guaranteed him a spot at Syracuse in 1976. Being good friends with Billy Osmun, Evans landed Statewide's original Kenny Weld modified. Jimmy Horton raced the newer '76 model.|
|11.30.14||3-Wide||So... just to try to understand this, I'm being told that
Statewide had 3 Kenny Weld built cars for the 1976 season:
1. Red Statewide #3 - Original "Weikert #29" Weld built car that was driven by Billy Osmun, Kenny Weld and I guess Gary Balough (and maybe Jimmy Horton)
2. White Statewide #19: Originally raced (1st time out) as the white #19 driven by Kenny Brightbill
3. Red Statewide #3 - The 2nd of two red Statewide #3 Weld cars. This car was first driven as a Statewide red #3 with Jimmy Horton behind the wheel (?)
Also, is there anyway to tell if the car pictured above is the 1st red Statewide #3 (originally the Weikert #29) or is the car pictured above the 2nd red Statewide #3?
