  3. Received this today from Kevin Triplett,

    Lee Kunzman's health is improving, but he is still confined to the hospital. As anyone who has been confined to in a hospital for a long time can tell you, cards and letters really help. The address for Lee is:

    Lee Kunzman
    4740 Pennington Court
    Indianapolis, IN 46254

    That is his home address, but his nephew picks up mail daily and delivers it to Lee at his bedside. If you could take a few moments to drop Lee Kunzman a get-well card, it would be much appreciated.

    HG :cool:

    Duke Cook has been posting about this on the Indiana Openwheel board, believe it has to do with some kind of infection.
     
  7. DZ, The information that I got second handed was it is related to complications from heart bypass surgery.

    Annual Racing Expo at the Hinchliffe Stadium, in Paterson, NJ On September 5th

    Paterson, NJ - The extremely popular CARQUEST Gasoline Alley TV / Internet Show will take a break from the studio in Allentown, PA, pack their gear and take the show on the road on September 5th as they travel to the Garden State of New Jersey to take part in the annual Racing Expo scheduled for the famous Hinchliffe Stadium located behind the Great Falls of the Passaic River in Paterson, New Jersey. The Gasoline Alley Gang of Ed and Steve Pados will tape another another fabulous edition of their show from 12 Noon until 2 PM and talk to the many racing legends who will be taking part in the show and help bring awareness of the great legacy of the famous stadium.

    (NOTE:- The show will air on Monday evening, September 6th, from 6 to 8 PM on channels 103 and 137 and worldwide on the Internet. This will be a special "theme" format of their show, teamed with the ongoing efforts of the Friends of Hinchliffe and racing personalities Ronny Dennis, Jim Reilly and Keith Majka the Pados brothers are honored to play a small part in the preservation of one of the great all-purpose stadiums in the country.)

    The Hinchliffe Stadium was built in the era of the Great Depression and opened in 1932 with a seating capacity for 10,000 fans. Baseball was the first sport to use the stadium as the New York Black Yankees and the New York Cubans both played their home games there and later the stadium included football with the Paterson Panthers and later the Night Hawks. With the popularity of auto racing sweeping throughout the country, the stadium hosted exciting midget auto racing. That later gave way to the early years of stock car racing. The famous stadium has also hosted many other varied events throughout it's years of existence, which included Boxing, Track and Field, and Soccer. While the stadium has remained dormant for the past few years, the rich legacy of the history of the great stadium remains and it is hoped through the efforts of the Friends Of Hinchliffe Stadium and it's racing counterparts, the stadium will once again hear the roar of throaty race cars once again competing on it's 1/4 mile asphalt oval.

    For the Pados Brothers, the return to New Jersey is significant. The Gasoline Alley name for the popular show came through their father Ed Pados, Sr who was raised in nearby Garfield, New Jersey, later moved to Milford, New Jersey and eventually settled in the Keystone State of Pennsylvania. The elder Pados was a frequent visitor to Gasoline Alley, in Paterson, NJ, where the legendary racing great Ted Horn had his race shops. The elder Pados was a close friend with this racing hero. Later when the Pados Brothers began to field race cars themselves, they utilized the motor services of the great John Bohlander who by then was located in the former Horn race shops. Through those friendships and alliances, the name of the Gasoline Alley Show was born. It is devoted to providing it's large audience with many trips back to the annals of racing history; as well as providing the exposure to the current racers and the youthful racing stars of the future.

    The list of celebrities and guests expected at annual event include the legendary Chris Economaki of National Speed Sport News, whose name is synonymous with the history of auto racing. Former Hinchcliffe racers Bill Claren, Ronny Kohler, Bob Krieger, Neil Cole, and Russ Meyer are scheduled to take part in the festivities. Bill Nash, who attended every racing event ever held at the stadium and was close personal friends with the famous open cockpit race driver Bill Schindler, is the recognized historian of the stadium. He will talk about the rich history of the racing action that took place there. Legendary midget & sprint car driver Jimmy Maguire plus many other open cockpit stand outs such as Johnny Mann and Billy Courtwright are expected. Many former stock car wheel twisters including Nate Strunk and Wyatt Jacobus are also anticipated to be on hand.. If she's up to it, Bette Fornoro, the wife of the late Nick Fornoro, who was a champion midget driver with the American Racing Drivers Club (ARDC) and a former Indy car flag man hope to attend. The American Three Quarter Midget Racing Association (ATQMRA) will take part in the show, with Blu Metz of that organization on hand for the occasion. The Flemington Speedway Historical Society and the Tri-State Memorabilia Group will be on hand, as will famed, veteran race photographer Ace Lane, Jr. and writer Tom Avenengo. DJ Joey Metro Entertainment will provide music throughout the day.

    A few of the many cars expected to take part in the show include the Chuck Slate owned restored Elto outboard powered midget, the Ed Picard 1938 midget that was in the Economaki Book, the White Ghost sprint car, the Johnny Zeke midget and a variety of other both vintage and current day race cars from all divisions of racing; plus hot rods, custom cars and street cruisers. All drivers and teams are encouraged to come out and join the festivities along with their cars, as the confines of the stadium are vast and the effort to rekindle and return the speedway to it's pedestal are paramount.

    The Stadium itself will have the Gates opening at 10 AM and the Show begins at 12 Noon.

    The Stadium is located on Liberty and Maple Street behind the Great Falls, in Paterson, NJ..

    Gene, thanks for the info on Stub Kunzman. I will take a minute to send a card. Please keep us updated. I will update some of the Iowegians back home who may want to cheer him up also. How time flies, as it just seems like the other day that his mother Julina passed away. What a saint she was.

    Josh,

    I`m very glad I was able to get that link to Lee`s photos on here for you to see.

    He did a great job. I love the one with the Winchester on the turn wall and you diving into the corner. The rest are great,too.
    He got you in the cockpit photos in the open face helmet with bandanna. I love that as opposed to the modern gear.
    Hopefully Lee got more good ones. I`m looking forward to seeing them!

    Tony- Yes, they are having track time. Cars should arrive prior to 4pm. We will have our car there, first outing in about 4 years for us. We fired the car for the first time at the convention after everyone left. Good thing, we found a nasty fuel leak.

    That is a great looking engine! That is going to be the coolest sprinter in the UK even if there were others over there.

    I just started reading this thread ( took a couple of months to get through the east coast modifieds, I'm sure this one will take even longer ) I don't know if this has been posted or not. Hooker Hoods car from 1967 and the restored version from 2010. He won 56 features out of 67 starts...not too shabby.
