Hudson was the first automobile manufacturer to get involved in stock car racing back in the 1950s when when stock car racers actually raced standard stock cars straight out the showroom. The famous phrase “Win on Sunday, sell on Monday” became a popular adage as if a Pontiac won at Darlington or Richmond or Martinsville on any given Sunday, sales of new Pontiacs would spike on the day after, especially at dealerships in close proximity to the race tracks.
In the 1952 season Marshall Teague dominated the AAA championship driving a Hudson Hornet and finishing with a 1000 point lead over his closest rival.
Fortunes change and the last Hudson rolled off the Kenosha assembly line on June 25, 1957
