Forgot about the really popular Armstrong Norsmans! There was the Bridgstone Aligator, Pos-A-Traction Hi-Jacker, Goodyear Suburbanite and Goodyear Baja's too. Don't recall the relation, but Davis tire made an exact copy of the gates and called it the Sand Blaster. Bilstein, which showed up somewhere around 70', interestingly started with the body on the bottom and shaft on top. FWIW, Larry Minor had a supercharged Bronco for a while.

The very active American Motors (yes, the ugly sedans) team included drivers:
John Crean
James Garner
Rod Hall
Bob Bondurant
Spence Murray
Hunter Floyd
Carl Jackson
Jim Wright
Jim Fricker
Walker Evans

Here'a a couple of the Old man back when he raced. The first one is of his Class 11a (same as a class 11 now but they were allowed to run baja fenders and bigger tires). This was the 1976 MINT 400 and he drew the 400th starting postion, Pretty cool. The second 2 photo's are from the 1975 Casino 300 in Laughlin. He had a rough race, his co-driver rolled it once and then my dad got in and rolled it again (note # plate in second pic). Thought I'd share a couple pic's since I LOVE this thread. Thanks to Jim Ober at TRACKSIDE for the photo's!
Any slim chance you have any pictures of the other class 11 baja bugs from 1976 or from the mint race that year? I raced that year in all the Snore/Arvra races but lost all my pics in a fire.

Those pictures came from Blood Eagle

Hagle Lumber had a test track on the back side of the property in Somis, Ca.

Ivan Stewart, Rod Millen, Jimmy Johnson.
I used to prep the track for Toyota. Walker. Arciero brothers and Danny T up in the canyon in Diamond Bar. I also did Robby test for Toyota and Rob Mscs test for Walker.

Hidden treasures.
I’m looking at picking up this Brian Chuchua Jeep Wagoneer to tow the Holy Toledo with. Does anyone have any info on it.

Here’s an old shot of my dad at Riverside raceway. He led the first couple of laps against the west coast guys as we were still from Massachusetts at the time. Then he rolled. But it’s a cool picture.

Yeah this was probably 5-6 trucks in. Same frame as all the others I think. Just an aluminum ranger body. This is one of his early trucks. I think it’s the same chassis just with a honcho body maybe.

Great thread.

The photo here is of the old Southern Baja races from La Paz to Cabo to La Paz. From the thirties! The photo dates to 1955, but the races are well known from the 40's.

Model T's and Chevy's. On the dirt streets and old wagon roads of the cape of Baja Mexico. The modern races started twelve years ago and one race has evolved into one of the National Offroad Championship races of Mexico, the Dos Mares 500, this year known as the Dos Mares CABO 500, which is running the old racing routes from the 30's, back to Cabo for the first time in many years, since 1959!

The finish line shot, with the RED FLAG is in Todos Santos, half-way to Cabo, the finish line in 1955. The 'contingency' shot is from La Paz in 1955. Full story at the website.
do you know where we can get these photos?

Bill from Carrera Photography posted some old photos on Facebook and had this one of me from the last race of the 1997 MDR season in his post. I've posted this one before but it was a crappy phone photo of a poster I printed back in the day... I'm buying all the photos he has of me from MDR 1997-1998. He's putting together package deals for people that want to get all of their photos. Maybe this is old news, but if not hit him up if you are interested. Carrera Photography

Does anyone know who was shooting MDR in 2000-2002? I'd like to find photos of my truck after I rebuilt the front suspension and raced for a year or two before selling the truck.

Bill is a GREAT guy and I am proud to call him a close friend. Here is a pic from Bill of my dad at the 1997 SCORE Primm 300. And another pic of the same car that I am racing now at the 2019 SNORE Battle at primm. Some things never change!
