    Apologies if this has been posted elsewhere. I was going down an online rabbit hole last night and ran across this. He raced Hubert Platt's old Georgia Shaker Thunderbolt and was severely injured in a crash of that car. I'm sure the details are on this thread.

    Lee C. "Mal" Malkemes, 83, of Hanover Twp., passed away Tuesday, Nov. 10, 2020 at home.

    Born in Wilkes-Barre on May 6, 1937, he was the son of the late Frank and Mildred Keithline Malkemes.

    He was known for drag racing and restoring nostalgic cars. He had a master's rating with the NRA to teach and certify police officers.

    Surviving are his daughter, Leigh C. Malkemes; sister, Marylou Widman; companion, Genevieve Elliott Raeder; and many nieces and nephews and their families.

    A later private inurnment will be in Hanover Green Cemetery, Hanover Twp.

    Arrangements are by George A. Strish Inc. Funeral Home, Ashley.

    Greetings

    Records in Drag Racing the Family Sedan show a Richard Clark winning C/FX in a ‘Fairlane’ at the 64 Winternationals.

    Can anyone provide background on the driver or car, or even better, a picture of either?

    Unfo I have no entry number or results list to go on.

    Thx in advance....
