[ ATTACH=full]2669737[/ATTACH] Steve Evans, '62, from Don Ewald's site. We remember Steve as a promoter and as an announcer (NHRA, swamp buggies, etc., etc.), and he was very good at those pursuits, but before he was famous, he ran this gas-burning 296" Desoto powered K-88. This is at San Gabriel, and next to the digger is Mike Demarest (Later of "Groundshakers" fame). Steve ran 130+ times, pretty good for the time. He later ran an evil-handling sbc-powered Dragmaster, which neither Steve or any one else (including Les Hawkins and Lyle Webster) could get to go straight. When Steve started the Santa Anita Speed Center in Arcadia (around '63), he sold this car to Bob Keilty, and later Keilty and I took the motor out of it and put into a Doug Robinson car, with a 6-71 and nitro, obliterated it after too many hard runs. Steve was on the road a lot and died too early. He was hard to match with his knowledge of drag racing and his ability to tell a story that both made it interesting and educational. Those of us who were lucky enough to know him still miss him.
