Of course, the ultimate in car number problems is the Chili Bowl. They add letters after the numbers, which is what the Knoxville Nationals does. At Knoxville, the track provides a painter to alter the cars.toggle quoted message Show quoted text

In the Bay Cities Racing Association (BCRA) in northern California the car numbers were based on car owner points for the previous season. I believe the first ten positions were required to use those numbers. Beyond that it was OK to trade around with permission from somebody. Some car owners chose to run high numbers that would not be effected by the 50 or 60 cars that would run in a given season in the 1950s and '60s. That way they could run the same number every year.
