I bought Bill Church's Class 10 RaceCo with a buddy back then, later sold it to George Erl (Up-Tite Husqvarna) after we learned running into boulders and walls made it too expensive for us.
Sweet ride. Wish I never sold it.
The Church's won Baja 1000 in Class 10 in 1987, not 100% positive but I think it was the very same RaceCo.
That's the car. He had painted the body White. Chasis was still blue. Would really love to know where Garett and that car is!!!??? I was young at the time. But I remember running around barstow in it with my dad at a race we were helping Garett at. Pure fun!
I drove the Wallace Raceco pre running many times, was a very fun car to drive. The name escapes me but the original owner of the car that became the candy cane car I believe had a heart attack in the car possibly and passed away. I remember him really being up in years but ran competitively in class 2 and raced everywhere both Score series and HDRA and then some. Walter Prince then bought it for next to nothing, I am sure less than 8 grand because the car was advertised for a while at 11 then dropped to 9 and still didnt sell. A 100 percent complete class 2 Race-co. It was always in Dusty times and off road advertiser for sale. I am sure I have some of those in the rafters with it forsale. Walter Prince bought it for a penny on the dollar and made it the candy cane car which made everyone scratch there heads in wonder. Walter was classic
