      Is this Carl Jackson? This is Norman Francis, Buzz's son and Ray's little brother.

        NOpe , not Carl Jackson. He lives close to me though in Havasu . I think his business is Javalina Cantina if you are trying to get in touch with him.

      Thanks alot. I've lost alot of his racing memoriabilia. I remember in the footage that they wire tied the radiator at the begining of the race. A last minute deal, and then a ways into the race they had broken down. He also had a golf cart business at Ontario Motor Speedway. Even if you were to point me in the right direction it would be much appreciated. I am sure he wasn't a student.

      I raced for Chaffey 1975-77 roughly. I believe Don was a little before me. The guys I raced with were Dave Fager, Joe Marquez,Bryce Baker and Dick Nace, If any of those name s ring a bell. Our instructor was Kent Fisk. They ran the Rambler a couple years for the college before students were allowed to race, I think that was when your grandpa raced. I'm pretty sure he raced the Rambler with Kent for a couple of years... I'll have to look for some of my historical stuff from back then...
      I'll let ya know what I find...

      When you did that race for Chaffey College was it with a man named Don Johnson. I believe you raced with my Grandfather. I used to have old 8mm footage of that race. Unfortunatly not anymore

      Indigo Joes is the name, and you take Hwy 95 to Palo Verde Turn left and it is beside the Golden Corral Buffett, which is behind Classic Burger. Robert and I will be there around noon.
