Tom Tiller, with his Plymouth leads a 1972 heat of late models at Catamount: 77 - Tiller; 16 - Fadden; 93 - Ruggieri; 96
[primer] Dubois; 5A - Cabana; and 55 - Wild Bill Branham.

 

    

     The Limited Sportsman cars were not to last long. In order to be in the limelight of NASCAR racing, the way to go was with the high - profile Late Model Sportsman division, which had a number of very prominent competitors, like Ray Hendrick, Butch Lindley, Harry Gant, and many more. Once in the shadow of the Grand Nationals and depending on bigger name stars filling out their Permatex fields, this division now had an identity of its own, which was furthered by the two big Martinsville races each year.

Jean-Paul Cabana, in the familiar Sonic Chevelle leads Ron Barcomb in his backup car and Little John Rosati. This
is around 1973 - during the grinding five track schedule.

    With all this in mind, Catamount [and the who circuit] upgraded to full late model sportsman status by 1972. No longer would any of the old cars be allowed in with the strictly-monitored sportsman cars. But, instead of reducing the fields or discouraging competitors, the exact opposite effect was realized. Teams were coming in from Southern New England, as well as a number of big names from the dirt track world. Catamount's pits were full to overflowing with snazzy little Chevelles, as well as Fords and Mopars. The track's die was cast... and it would seemingly never go back.
