One of my favorite races as Dave Richardson would run the California side and I would run the two laps on the Arizona side. 1985 was the year it snowed. It got so cold on the graded roads that my shocks and carb froze which caused neither to work very well until I got back into the rough sections. I was about the 7th car on the road and it was total white out in some sections. We ran the ghost town ( Swansea ) back then which was cool.

Here is a pic of my truck back when it was Grady Smith’s in 1985 at the Parker. I sure would love to get my hands on this photo. A pm was sent to who I think posted on the Vintage Facebook page but no response.

Parker 1977 was my very first race my Pop's had me do the California side. That is and has been my all time favorite race. I never drove the Arizona side.
