Longtime NASCAR Cup Series team owner Larry McClure celebrates a birthday today. Co-owner of Morgan-McClure Motorsports, McClure’s team fielded one of the most iconic cars in the sport for nearly 20 years when Kodak came on board as his team’s primary sponsor in 1986. The team won 14 races, including back-to-back Daytona 500s with Sterling Marlin in 1994 and 1995, and also fielded top drivers like Ernie Irvan, Bobby Hamilton, and a young Mark Martin.
