    It was the Boyce Holt car in 68 driven by Chuck Booth. I believe it was originally the Racing Associates "Red Rooster" upright from 62 driven by Davis,Rutherford among others.

    Rootie,
    What a great picture of the best race I ever saw at Williams Grove. 4 different leaders, Thomson, Larson (the eventual winner), Len Sutton and Buzz Barton. It was fantastic.

    The theory is Buzz's engine might have been a little large and he backed up to not get hauled down.

    thx

    It was 1960 at the NYS Fairgrounds mile. I was 13 years old and watched Bobby Grim in the Bill Forbes Special nose out Tony Bettenhausen in the Dowgard Special .
    Attended the Syracuse finale this past weekend...so many memories

    Yep Dean did not see the dent, most of those dirt cars had a chrome tube tail piece push bar thingy

    Even if they fire it from the front, they still need to it get it around ?

    Thanks Roo
    As I did not know that since I got into the dirt track racing in 60' when meeting Don Brown

    But mainly followed the sprinter's since they ran here at Ascot, and what Don was doing with his building & racing
