Comment: This photo is dated 1975, so the driver is a mystery
to me... Jimmy Horton drove the Statewide #3, and he had a red helmet,
but he didn't drive this car until the following year. If this is 1975, the only drivers I thought would have been Kenny Weld,
Billy Osmun... and maybe Gary Balough(?)... and I'm sure it's not Weld, or
Balough in this shot above... (Maybe Billy O, but I don't know
if he had a red helmet....)
What do you guys think? I'm leaning toward Billy O.....

Any chances the car was sold and driven by the new owner, looks kind of rough for a statewide owned car.
|05.28.16||3Wide||I think this car stayed in the Statewide stable for at least the next year ('76, and possibly even in '77?). I agree with you a Statewide car would never show up to a track looking like this one, so I'm guessing that the damage on the car in the picture above probably had just happened that day.|
