    Hey Dave,
    I was able to get up near the start line with our fixed lens movie camera and the crowds were heavy and anxious to see this race. So, I had to fight my way closer to get the shot. If I had a telephoto lens, I could have been standing a little farther away. We were probably pushing each other to get the best view of this historic race!
    At the time, I just wanted a great shot of the race and did not recognize any discrepancies. Thanks for the memories and luckily, I had it recorded for drag racing history.

    Pit pass rules were a little lax back then and $1.00 got you just about anywhere you wanted to go at the dragstrip, Riverside Raceway was no exception...

    I'm looking for more info and photos on this car, was it ever featured in any mags, I've seen a colour pit shot, I guess Pete Millar's next car was the Chicken Coupe that ended up in England via Sweden

    This was Al Tschida's car from St Paul, MN. His brother in law was Bill Mitchell. I wasn't aware that Bill was owner or driver of the "612" car but looks like it based on this photo. There was a "331" numbered car with a different paint job that Bill owned ( perhaps the same car?)
