Wayne Brockman drove a #42 Ford in the ARCA race at Salem on 8/21/66. Think it might be him?

Calhoun - I think you got it ! If I squint real hard at the name on the roof I think it could read "Wayne". Looks like the right amount of letters, too.

They are old and faded but here are a few more pictures from the "Competition Press" article on the 1972 "Golden State 400" race at Riverside. My apologies for posting these tipped sideways, but these are full newspaper sized articles that I am trying to post without having to crop them too much.

Those are neat, Norton! Seeing Hampton reminds me of what Milt Hartlauf used to say about him - "He's like good bourbon. He gets better with age."

The first photo of Benny's 98 shows he wasn't afraid to mix it up on the short tracks, and the second one is a classic lineup shot with Snow and Hampton behind him. The guy on the right with the fire extinguisher looks like the late Dave Renn, one of the best scorers I ever worked with. I remember him wearing red pants.

Well, Tom, on short notice, here's the Harry Hyde-prepared Pontiac in which Andy won the 1964 Late Model Championship at the Fairgrounds.

My dad (N. D. Copley) along with some other guys from Louisville used to race on Friday nights at Danville Sportsdrome (black top track) back in 1967. Just wondering if anyone out there had any photos from these races that could be posted. My dad won a track championship that year.

BBARC ... I asked Phil Bonner about this, see below. The BBARC was on more than just the one '63 car.

Never have known the exact time and date I used it on 54 Mercury in late 53 when we used to race at Fairburn GA, in 53 and 54. Did you know that Fireball was a good friend of mine and raced several times in my drag cars. I was around that Chevy, Paul McDuffy was one of the owners.He ddied at Darlington, in the pits. I think we were first, in 53, but don't bet on it, to many years to remember.Just like my memory I'm getting old. Will see you in Bowling green. Phil

Hi Phil,

I trust that you are enjoying things in Costa Rica? The weather is finally warming up here in NJ. Winters get harder to handle with each passing year. Oh well.

I have a question for you ... I've noticed on the back of Fireball Roberts' '57 Chevy that the BBARC initials are there and some NASCAR history guys have said they stand for Builders of Bad Ass Race Cars ... your's was Bonner's Bad Ass Race Car(s) ... was there a connection between the intitials, an anecdote/parody or just coincidence. I know that you knew alot of the NASCAR people from those days. I wonder if you might take a few minutes to talk about it? Thanks.

Joel
