These special brochures were first printed in 1964 by Cotton Owens Garage, "Home of the Racing Dodges."
The classic styling and vintage typesetting capture a special era of graphic design as well as racing nostalgia. 1963 marked Dodge's first year on the NASCAR circuit, and the Cotton Owens Garage racing team, sponsored by the Carolinas Dodge Dealers, printed these promotional brochures in preparation for the 1964 NASCAR season. Owens would field a two-car Dodge team that year, with drivers David Pearson and Billy Wade at the wheel. The brochure features full-panel stories on Owens, drivers Pearson and Wade, as well as big Maurice "Pop" Eargle, a cigar-chewing, 342-pound mechanical genius whose inventions and racing contributions are too numerous to list. "Pop" Eargle was Owens' top engineer and chief mechanic, who joined the Owens-Dodge team after working with fellow Spartanburg NASCAR legend Bud Moore for three years. These classic items tell a great part of the NASCAR legacy and are an excellent souvenir for any racing nostalgia fan or collector.
