Piedmont Racing


From 1982 to 1988 Piedmont Airlines, apparently feeling flush in good times and with an infusion of cash from Norfolk & Western Railroad, ventured into NASCAR.  They were the first airline to do so.  They sponsored Richard Childress’ team from Ricky Rudd to Sterling Marlin.  This iron-on patch is 3.75″ wide and 2.5″ deep.  Incidentally, Piedmont was the 10th largest airline in the U.S. at the time.  I think United owns the name now.
