I love the bs that gets spread around Good psych out. Bill Spencer's '56 Plymouth Hobby Stock was #543 and he painted it Petty Blue and had Plymouth by Bill on the rear quarter panel, just like Richard had on his car at the time. I remember he and "Big" Ed Moss. Bill's performance in his first Sportsman car (a '63 Plymouth) got him a drive in Floyd Johnson's #67. Johnson owned cars for years and employed Jim Cook, Becker Jr., Spencer, etc. Really, Johnson's #67 and Sigman's Circle #6 were the cars to be in. They were the best cars/car owners in So Cal. Bill was a heck of a driver, very promising. His accident at Riverside in January 1975 was in the #52 Pomona Truck Electric sponsored car. Unfortunately, the owner's name escapes me at the moment - Kurt ?. He and Bill Osborne were a two car team, Osborne moving over from being Ivan Baldwin's teammate. They switched their racing in '74 to Cajon Speedway near San Diego as the purses were better. Both did well against some very tough competition. Spencer had the 1 lap track record at Cajon for some time. His was a great loss, felt throughout the Southern California stock car scene.
