Provider's comments: Bill always had great looking cars.  I had heard that Joey McCarthy, (who I think is Bill's son), had recently gotten some sponsorship from "Trim Spa" to help out his Busch North efforts.  Looks like Skip Turyonas in the 8T alongside of Bill.

02/05/03 Debbi ...regarding Bill McCarthy, yes, Joey is his youngest son who does have the TrimSpa sponsorship for the Busch North Series.
02/05/03 3-Wide Were there any other relatives that raced back in the 60's?  I seem to remember the McCarthy name from some 50's or 60's pictures I was looking through.
02/06/03 Debbi I don't know about a grandfather or anything, but Bill had a brother, Eddie who raced late models at Flemington (white #10), Eddie won one or two features on the dirt down there.. That's about all I know.
03/03/03 Todd L Yeah that's Skip Turyonas in the 8T and I remember Bill's later efforts in an orange #726 (kinda looked like the Tide ride) and I remember when Joey decided to go north and thought it's too early in his career .
02/13/07 Todd Lewis Bill's son Joey currently resides in North Carolina and is employed as a fabricator for Andy Belmont Racing Joey went to the ARCA test in Daytona (Dec.) and posted the 9th best time.

I see in the discussion on this photo asking about a McCarthy from an earlier time. I believe you might be referring to another Bill McCarthy that was from the south Jersey area and raced many years at wall stadium and no relation to this Bill McCarthy. I was the Crew Chief of the Bill McCarthy that raced at Flemington.
