Johnny Thomson #1 Johnny Kay #45 Mike Magill #8 Reading 1955.
Who's that up in the cush, getting a facefull? My bet's on Hinnerschitz.
Very Cool Thread,..awsome pics.
JJones, looks like Tommy to me too, in his blue #3.
On the beal/traylor car... Ken Hickey owned it between Traylor and Stearly. (1959)
How many guys does it take to keep a champ car from hopping off the ground? .... J.R. at PHX. 1962, the end of his rookie season in the Champ cars.
A couple yrs. later on the hills of Winchester leading his "BFF" Gordo.
Mr. Nise, thank you, I will now include Mr. Hickey.
I got nothing.. sorry.
Here are a couple of pictures of fellow Hamber Jim Greybeal in his new ride at Salem last Saturday
That second pic is my new wallpaper.
Looks very much like my street-legal will.
butch, I sent you a private message...
I have some 3" hubs
Does anybody know the Number 89 car in the photo on the #6883 post??
All I know is that it is a Ford powered sprinter driven by Benton Burns, a super modified driver out of Phoenix, who was in his first start in a sprinter. Maybe our AZ. friends can add more.
Some of you may be interested in my report from the Williams Grove oldtimers at Latimore Valley.
There are some roll cages and a few stockers,but there is some real good stuff,too.
I am writing a thumbnail sketch of midget racing by using cars at the show as examples.
I am writing this in a general fashion,off the cuff,so if I have erred,correction is welcome.
This report is a work in progress that I will be adding to.
Would you be interested in selling one? I need the right side. Price? Could you e-mail a pic? Thanks Scott
Gene Brown at Ascot 1963, racing with Heath #97 and Hogle #3.
Anybody know where you can get one of those cool facemasks all the guns wore at Ascot back in the open-face helmet days? (see Hogle in the shots at El Centro & Ascot). Who made them back then? I think they snap onto the rim of the A-O goggles.
Probably museum pieces nowdays. But there not a lot different than paintball masks though.
This Saturday Night at the Burg.. $10,000 to win Non Wing 410 sprints..
Cherry pickers will be in attendance.
My money is on Levi Jones, or Jon Stanbro
See you there.
Oh, and congrats to Donny Schatz, for winning his FOURTH Knoxville nats in a row!!
That's pretty stout.
I have this one from the 60's that was made by Tony Nancy from English glove leather. I wore it in the slingshot and later on the dirt ovals (not the smartest thing I ever did....it had glass lenses).
Mine is all leather without eye covers
Try Norm Rapp Racing San Francisco CA. I was down there a little while back and he had some .
Hi it is Ron from Australia,
Sorry guys it is not a 1969 or older but I have just purchased a 1977 ex Larry Rice (R.I.P.) LTC Midget with Scat engine that Larry bought and ran in the U.S. before taking to NZ where he won the World Derby.
I do have some history coming but I would appreciate any information you can help me with. I am keen to replicate his race suit and helmet for display purposes. The livery of the car as run by Larry is as per the photo.
I remember seeing Larry drive when he first paid a visit to Australia, absolutely sensational and a good bloke that made many friends here.
With his new #1 paint job barely dry, Roger McCluskey takes this scary flip at Reading early 1964. His broken arm sidelined him most of the rest of the season keeping him from defending.
Call Nancy at Hinchman Uniforms in Indianapolis I am sure they can replicate the uniform
Thanks racer 5c,
Do you have any info or pics? or whom I can email?
Apologies for this being later than 1969, just looking for some assistance.
Received this email today from a guy who saw my picture (below). He is a friend of the driver, Malcolm Lovelace, and is looking to find the car. Thought I would post the picture to see if anyone knows it's whereabouts, if it still exists. Any help is appreciated. I will post more history as I learn it, previous owners, etc...
Contact me at email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org
(email I received):
I seen the pictures of Malcolm Lovelaces roadster and told him about it and he asked me to try and track the car down.So if you have any information on the where abouts of the car it would be great.. Thank You: Curt
Benton Burns raced out of Tucson. Dont know about the car. Looks a little rough
Tell her Roy sent you
