Default Joe James-Dick Gossett Promo Decal 1986

In 1986, the Dick Gossett owned - Joe James Jr. driven #54 Corvette Limited Late Model won the CARC (Colorado Automobile Racing Club) championship for this division. This car was beautiful and fast. The one thing that was unusual about this team was that a promoter worked the grandstands and the general public to try to reach another level for the team in stock car racing. This promoter was a woman and her company was called Fursteam Promotions. She would work the grandstands wherever this team would run, handing out next race flyers and the decals pictured below. I cannot remember her name, but personally, I thought that her idea was far fetched. She came to me with her idea and wanted me to letter this car for free, noting that my name would be added to the cars lettering scheme for all to see.......I had to give that some real thought....NO! You see, I had been around that block before and it only got me another freebee lettering job. But, I have to say, it was the only promo team I'd ever seen at Lakeside Speedway during this era.

This autographed decal was found amongst Jimmy Davis' collection of stickers and Rick was good enough to scan it for me, thanks Rick. I just thought that it was a cool find after all of these years. And yes Rick is right this car was beautiful and really hauled.
