We are looking for any NASCAR Corvette Photos, Programs, Magazine/Newspaper articles, Race Grids/ Results of the early 1953-55 Corvettes that raced against the T-Birds at Raleigh Speedway in 1955 & 1956, Martinsville Speedway in 1955 & 1956, Bowman Gray Stadium in Winston-Salem, NC in 1955- '57 & Daytona Beach, FL in February 1956. The race numbers probably were #92, #62, #55, #27, #16, #3. The Drivers were Bill France, Joe Hawkins in Daytona, the Thomas brothers, Gwyn Staley, Pee Wee Jones, Junior Johnson, Jimmy Massey, Ralph Liguori, Bobby Myers and Johnny Dodson in the Carolinas. The cars were maintained by Hubert Westmoreland. The Corvettes were probably owned by NASCAR or Bill France Racing in Greensboro, NC. We would like to discuss the NASCAR Scoda sanctioned events where the Corvettes and T-birds raced against European Sports Cars. Email: terry@proteamcorvette.com or write to: P.O.
