I recently aquired a rodney combs craftsmaan series cheverolet that is #49 lance . I know that petty enterprises did field some trucks for rodney but i would like to know if this truck was one of them. It has the same paint scheme as the 43 busch series car. Is this a petty truck or did the pettys sell it to him, i just want to restore this . I am hoping it is affiliated with the pettys,
it is aracing champions 1/24 scale diecast
.i know the pettys did field a chevy for rodney before getting involved with the dodge program101_0066_zps07cf2482.jpg

Combs raced the Lance Snacks Chevy at North Wilksboro in 1996.  His only Truck race that year.   Susan Combs was listed as his owner.  The only year he raced Petty Enterprise trucks was in 95 when he qualified for 5 races.  Of course the truck was #43 and was sponsored by Snapper Power Equipment for 4 races and by Comfrey Corner and the US Bobsled Team for 1 race.

cool info. I mostly remember Rodney from the NDRA dirt track days. Car #5 that had the logo "making Florida greener $" on the rear.

Your welcome.   Sorry it wasn't the Petty truck you were hoping for.  Still a cool project.
