  15. Curtis Turners First Win in NASCAR

    Hello, I'm gonna post this search in Randy Ayers Nascar Web Page after it's update is complete. But, I'd thought about giving you dudes and dudettes a shot. I'm on a quest to build models of the cars Curtis Turner raced through out his career. When completed they will be donated to the Curtis Turner Display in the Virginia Museum of Transportation in Roanoke, VA. The only car I cannot find a photograph of is his first win in NASCAR...1949 Oldsmobile at Langhorne Speedway. The car was sponsored and or owned by Hubert Westmoreland, whoever he was. Thank you for any assistance you can offer.
