    Gary Egbert in the Egbert and Seaman car out of Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. Gary later drove a turbo/nitro top fuel car owned by Gale Banks and Ron Hodgson.

    Ron Rivero in the K & G Speed Associates top fueller. This was a demonstration deal at an air force base. Here is Ron's description of what went down:
    "Well it's raining so they decided to do this in a hanger. The plan is to push to start the car in the hanger and then out in the rain and make the turn and back to hanger and do a burn out. Here's the thing, on both sides of the hanger are war planes and the troops, and outside the hanger more war planes. So after the burn out I'll be going pretty fast so going to stop with wet tires as it's still raining ought to fun .It turned to SHIT real fast, the car spun 180 and ended looking right at the hanger. So drove it back to the middle of the hanger, whacked it and shut her off. I got out of the car and the people thought I did the spin on purpose soooooooo I went with it, aren't I good or what!!"

    Looks like Jess Van Deventer and if it is 1963 that was the last time that he raced at Indy before retiring from the sport. He won Best Engineered and class honors at Indy in 1961 and took class again the following year. He was also the NHRA points champion in 1962. He was inducted into the International Drag Racing Hall of Fame in 2015 and passed away last August at 81.

    That Corvette's going to hurt when it hits. From the grille and door chrome that makes it a '63.

    Not necessarily so, I did that once with car in my avatar for ~ 1/3 of track and still under full power when it came down. It just shimmied front-end a little when it hit and was only about ½ car link behind guy in other lane, I keep peddle down and passed him before finish line for the win. Didn’t hurt car at all…… maybe a little damage to my underwear though :D.

    John Thomas from Holt, MI at the wheel. He ran a series of Wayne Farr built cars and was still active in T/F as late as 1975. Johnny Davis also raced with #328 but obviously this is not him.

    Jim Harnsberger in the Mingee-Harnsberger Woody car out of Urbana, IL. He was the T/F runner up at the 1969 AHRA Nationals in Detroit with this car. Harnsberger later drove a late hemi powered full bodied Fuller car for Ray Mattox out of Terre Haute, IN and was runner up at the 1971 NHRA Summernationals.
