Notes/Race History: Wilbur Pickett originally raced a red Corvette in IMSA with Charlie Kemp, under his Holiday Inn sponsorship. Engines were provided by Lleldon Blackwell, which accounts for his logo on the rear fender. However, that car was crashed and written-off. Wilbur then built a second car late in 1972, using an older 1968 as the basis. This car was sponsored by Lleldon Blackwell racing, directly, and shared drivers with Bill Bean. This car ran for two years, at which time Wilbur Pickett retired from racing. At our last update, the car was owned by John Sloane.
