    Victor Abruzzese?

    All anyone seems to know is he died young. I was looking for his story, how he got into racing. Looks like another call to Dick Landfield is in order. :)

    Victor Abruzzese?

    Does anyone here know whatever happened to Victor? Looked like he raced for about five years or so and then dropped out of the sport? Facts only please, no guesses.

    John Baker motors...need some help

    All of John's engines were built by Keith Black Racing Engines, they did Walker's and Rod Hall's too, must have been a factory arranged deal. Originally Class 7 had a 2.4 liter engine limit so the engines were sleeved down to that limit. So maybe if Keith Black's company is still around they may...

    Ray Harvick?

    Sadly, I learned today in a conversation with Larry Minor that Ray passed away not too long ago. Jim Loomis is alive and well and I should be interviewing him soon. Jim Fricker is not available for interviews at this time.

    Researching Smith Brothers

    In the 1969 Mexican 1000 a Stroppe prepared Bronco was involved in a fatal accident when it ran up behind an open wheel car, the tires touched and the Bronco flipped over killing the occupants. Not to sound morbid, but does anyone remember much about the incident or the deceased?

    1988 SCORE Baja 1000

    Thanks! That Dusty Times archive is very cool, hope someone can step up and sponsor it. Sue Mead says it was not her in that race.

    1988 SCORE Baja 1000

    As long as a lot of people are home with time on their hands, does anyone out there have a entry list or results (prefer both) from the 1988 1000? Need for research on the Bronco Racing book. Bonus points, does anyone remember the female journalists who ran the event in a Bronco?

    Source?

    SCORE - San Felipe 250?

    I am hoping that the silence from SCORE is because they are attempting to have solid answers of when it could run again or remaking plans for the 500, 400 or 1000 to help San Felipe recover from the financial hit of postponement or can cancellation. Whether the event runs with a depleted entry...

    Mint 400 - Where's Robby?

    Serious lack of big names on the entry list. I kept watching all month to see if people were just entering late. Seems like the split with BITD may have made a big difference to sponsors and teams. How does the Mint 400 come back from this? Try to reconcile with BITD? See if SCORE will make it a...
