I somehow forgot to post the pictures for my previous post.

"Came across this interesting photo of a #92 1968 Camaro racing at an SCCA event called the Cotton Carnival Grand Prix which was apparently held May 3-4, 1969 at the Shelby County International Raceway in Lakeland, Tennessee near Memphis.  Is this the Rusty Jowett 1968 Camaro?  I have never heard of this track but it must have been a major SCCA event because Bob Tullius and his Group 44 Triumphs were there according to the pictures."

I found the picture among a group of 60 photos from the event at the Revs Institute web site: https://library.revsinstitute.org/digital/custom/results?search=shelby+county+international+raceway&collection=p17257coll1&CISOSEARCHALL=shelby+county+international+raceway

That is Rusty's Camaro but the track is Marlboro Raceway in Maryland so the photo is misidentified. I suspect Bob Tullius is also at Marlboro but did not look at the photo.
