And thanks to Stephen Payne for submitting this additional information- The team of Ronnie Sox and Buddy Martin raced at tracks throughout North Carolina and became a national sensation in the 1960s and early '70s dominating the action in their chosen area of competition, including the Super Stock, Factory Experimental, Funny Car, and Pro Stock categories. The team duo pioneered the development of drag racing teams as professional business operations. Sox was the winningest Pro Stock driver (nine victories in 23 events) in the 1970-72 "four-speed era." Initially Martin and Sox were competitors, but Martin approached Sox to drive his car after concluding that he just couldn't beat him. The Sox & Martin team ceased operation at the end of the 1975 season as a result of the energy crisis and dwindling factory support.
