Marty Robbins/Cotton Owens Dodge

A vehicle of Historical Significance

This unique car has a lot of history, having been originally built as a 1971 Plymouth by Cotton Owens.  It was raced that year by Pete Hamilton, who won its first race out one of the 125-mile qualifying races at Daytona in the car.  The following year, it was converted to a Dodge and run a total of three times by Charlie Glotzbach finishing its second Daytona 500 in 2nd for Cotton Owens. Then in 1973 it was run in the Daytona 500 a third time with driver Dick Brooks running for Cotton it finished 3rd. Then driven for the last time as #6 by Peter Gregg at the 73 World 600 he qualified 7th but wrecked on lap 34. It was then purchased by C/W music star Marty Robbins.  For the next nine years, Owens rebuilt and maintained the car, while Robbins was the owner and driver.

Marty first drove the car in the Alamo 500 at Texas World Speedway in 1973, and drove it for the last time in the ARCA 200 at Talladega in August of 1981.  It was wrecked three times (the National 500 at Charlotte in 1974, and at the Daytona 500 and the Winston 500 at Talladega, both in 1975) and was rebuilt each time by Owens.  It was also re-skinned several times to meet NASCAR model specifications, and wound up as the 1978 Dodge Magnum that it is today.

Marty raced the car 19 times, 10 of them at Talladega, four times at Michigan, three times at Daytona and once each at Charlotte and Texas.  All of the races except its last one were Winston Cup races.  Marty's highest finish was at Michigan in June of 1974, when he placed fifth in the Motor City 400.

After Marty passed away in December of 1982, his son, Ronnie Robbins, had Owens to restore the car to pristine condition, and in July of 1983, it was donated by the Robbins family to the International Motorsports Hall of Fame in Talladega.  It has been on display there ever since.  In February of 2003, it was valued in an independent appraisal of all Hall of Fame vehicles/exhibits at $50,000.

Pictures below are from the Talladega Motorsports Hall of Fame.

Marty Robbins
Stock Car Racer and Country/Western Musician

Although he's best known for his old-timey cowboy anthems, Marty Robbins was not that much different from Roger Miller in that there was so much more to his musical style than what was commercially successful. Sure, he was known for his classic gunfighter ballads but he also played and recorded some rootsy rock 'n' roll songs as well as some lush, string-laden pop. Robbins' youth was peppered with many exciting and rich Americana experiences; his grandfather was a medicine show man who spun wild tales of the Wild West, so it shouldn't have been a big surprise that he worked at a dude ranch, before quitting school and living his life as a freewheelin' hobo. After a stint in the military, he started playing cowboy songs under the pseudonym of "Jack Robinson." It wasn't long before success found him and he decided to play under the name Marty Robbins.


The late country and western singer Marty Robbins loved his NASCAR racing. Thanks to his immense success in C&W, he, unlike most of us, was in a position to indulge this affection. From 1966 to 1982, he ran in 33 events, collecting about $50,000 in prize money, with a best finish of 5th at Michigan in 1974. (There was a movie made about his career in Stock car racing, in which he played himself. )

For most of his racing career, Marty drove a second-hand chassis, one he had purchased from Cotton Owens in 1973, skinned at the time as a '73 Charger. Cotton maintained and tuned the car for Marty, and rebodied it several times during its life to stay current with the Nascar rules. The 1978 Magnum version was the final version, and after Marty died in December '82, it was restored by Cotton Owens then donated by his family to the Talladega museum.

Marty never took himself seriously as a racer, and did it for the sheer enjoyment. His car was set up with a softer suspension than the hard chargers, to make it more predictable. He made a point of keeping out of the way of those in the points chases over the years. He promised Petty and Pearson and others of the day that he wouldn't drive a race car like them if they didn't sing like him.

Below are words taken from an interview on another website of Cotton Owens recollection of the Marty Robbins car.

Cotton Owens:  I sold Marty Robbins a racecar and we changed it into a '73 Dodge it was Pete Hamilton's old car. We made a Dodge out of it. I sold Marty Robbins that car and that car is in the museum now in Talladega. We ran that car all the way, just kept changing. Changed it into a Magnum, you could run the body three years.

Although Marty had raced this car a number of times, on this day he hit the front stretch wall on the first lap to avoid a spinning Buddy Baker, who was driving the Bud Moore Ford.

Marty Charges to the Front...

One of the most interesting anecdotes of the 1972 season involves Dodge driver and noted country and western star Marty Robbins. Robbins competed on the NASCAR circuit from time to time in addition to his regular competition at the Nashville Fairground track, followed by his rush across town for his regular appearance on the late Grand Old Opry Saturday Night Show. It seems that at the May 7, 1972 "Winston 500" at Talladega, Marty Robbins' Dodge Charger ran extremely well. As a matter of fact, uncharacteristically, he was running with the leaders and regularly passing cars that he ordinarily did not pass. Late in the race Robbins' car was clocked at 188 MPH, which was about 14 MPH faster than he had qualified.

After the race, the story goes, Marty went up to one of the NASCAR officials and told him that something had to be wrong with his car--it ran too fast. Robbins then suggested that the official check his carburetor. When the carburetor was checked, it was found to be illegal, and Marty's car was disqualified. According to Greg Fielden, the lost purse cost Robbins about $1300, about which he laughed, "It was worth it. In fact, I'd have paid that much money for a picture of Joe Frasson's face when I passed him." Frasson's Dodge finished sixth, one lap off the pace in that race.

Joe Frasson was also apparently quite a character in his own right. He even made an appearance at Volunteer Speedway, the three-eighthes mile dirt track in Bulls Gap, Tennessee, where he produced a very vivid and memorable image as he walked around the pits in his characteristic black felt slouch hat. However, at Bulls Gap on the night he ran there, his car was not competitive with the track regulars.

Incidentally, in that same event in which Marty Robbins' Dodge "ran so well", NASCAR fans saw the first Winston Cup appearance of super star to be Darrell Waltrip.
