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:
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.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!
