History

Ol' Paint was state of the art in its era and debuted as a fast car its initial time on the track. In 1969, #91, "Ol' Paint" carried Jimmy Oskie to the California Racing Association Championship. It was the last non-caged sprint car to win that title.

Ol' Paint has never been upside down or badly crashed and is 95% the original car that Hank Henry built. The car was retired in 1974.
