Not sure, my dad started taking me when I was around 3 . The photos must me from 1967 to 1970 or so..

PS The 07 kart in the right of the photo is Travis LaJoie's who is around 8.

Nice old Danbury shots, my boss bought the 007 from Eddie rRchie for fifty bucks, just for the wheels, had me cut it up with a torch...talk about a used up car... that was it. Had one of Fuzzie Baer's old 34 bodies, and gave it to a guy who never paid me...wouldn't be surprised if he still has it, (and he owes lots of folks money), PM me if you want his name...

Lou Lazzaro's very first win pictured here.Lou had to borrow Junior Bianco's name so that he wouldn't get docked NASCAR points for running a non-sanctioned track.Junior was Louies lifelong friend & crewchief.The Track is the old Victoria Speedway.

Boy, is that a risky choice for a restoration. That was the most hated car and driver ever, as I can remember. I'll bet there are still a few around that will throw a beer can at it!

I disagree. I know he wasn't a beloved driver back in the day, although always one of my favorites. And the Valiant was my favorite car. I sat in the grandstands at Weedsport Speedway for almost the entire 70s, and I could tell you someone who was hated more (I was a fan of him too).

He cleaned house that day with his dirt car,he showed the ultra low and sleek,southern modified boys the short way around.

I'll disagree as well, at that point in time Geoff was just starting to make his mark. Later in his career when he wheeled the Armstrong Big Red 1, was when he really started to ruffle feathers.
