Rootie Kazoootie, A BIG THANK YOU !!!, Great Pic's and info
I running short on memory. Any idea whose car that is?
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.
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.
Where was Boyce Holt from?
Indiana, I believe he owned several muffler shops around the state.
I think he was from Marion, Indiana.

Looks like someone got a little close to the tail.
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 ?
Back in the 50s the Champ Cars didn't much use bumpers.
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
