  1. Well that's just a little jewel, ain't it? ;) In that last shot I especially like that little bit of "road rash" down low on the nose. :cool:

    Helped with this sprinter at Salem for the 1969 Joe James Pat O'Connor Memorial race. Bruce Jacobi was the driver and always wondered if this was an old Indy car. Anyone have any ideas?? #31 racecar.jpg

    Hi my name is Tammy Larson, I am a cousin of both Russ and Ronnie Larson. I have been doing research on my racing family members and found this site. I hope to make contact with others who knew my cousins.

    Yes Ron and Russ were brothers, I am their much younger cousin. Tammy Larson. All the brothers raced and so did most of the men in my dads family.

    I suspect this may have been the debut of Aggies new Kuzma built 98jr., late 48-early 49 at Carrell Speedway. 3-16-a.JPG

    Rootie..This looks like Johnny Mantz leading Frank McGurk on November 14, 1948 at the Carrell Speedway

    Tammy...there is a Sprint car round table or discussion happening this coming Sunday in Savage MN that may be of interest to you that may well include people that knew and/or discussion of your cousins.

    Refer to the National Sprint Car Hall of Fame website for the meeting announcement. I will also try to copy and paste it here.

    See page 466 of this thread from back in 2011. Posts # 13963, 13969 and 13971.

    Now maybe you can answer the questions that were asked.

    I'm surprised nobody has a modern firesuit done up in early western style....
