TRIVIA RECAP (July - Dec 2008)

Here's the answer to our 12/31/08:  We asked, "Through the years there have been many brothers who have raced...  So here's the challenge:  Can you name 5 sets of brothers who raced at a local speedway, at the same time (possibly against each other) in the same division, who each won at least one feature event?"  Here's one example below...

(By the way, you gotta love this photo above as it looks like the 2 featured brothers above are checking each other out in what we hope was a pace lap at Flemington in the early to mid 1970's.)

Remember: We were looking for brothers, who raced on the same "local" track (local as in Nazareth, Flemington, Middletown, EWS, Bridgeport, Wall, Vineland, New Egypt, Grandview, Hatfield, Alcyon, Old Bridge), in the same division, that also won at least one feature event each.

Here's the Answer to our 10/15/08 Trivia Question:
We asked, "How many drivers can you name from this Trenton Speedway photo?"

Above photo provided by Ed Duncan

Here's the info that was provided with the photo:
1st Row:  Jim Hendrickson #141, #SSS Bob Malzahn, #41 Lenny Brown
2nd Row:  Jack Murphy #6, Perk Brown #22, Johnny Rocco #0
3rd Row:  Bill Wimble #62, Ed Sigler #162, Charlie Cregar #Z-1
Also in photo:  Bill Wark #10A, Bob Abel #21, Jack Hart #1 and Vince Conrad #57
(Photo dated:  1958 - Trenton, NJ)

Here's some additional info from Jim Brewer that he's not 100% sure of, but seems to remember:  The #141 of Jim Hendrickson sat on the pole for this race.  It was owned by Freddy Formato and the car burned in the pits during a pitstop about halfway in the race. The car was the former Flying A of Joe Orzano. The #62 is one of Frank Trinkaus's famous rides.

The 1958 NASCAR Modified title went to Budd Olsen but Hendrickson was a very close second due to points lost in racing a non-NASCAR track during an Islip rain-out. A controversial end to the title chase since NASCAR allowed racing at unsanctioned tracks during rain outs - - Hendrickson lost his points but never protested.

10/1/08: We asked: "Can you name BOTH of these drivers?"

Photo By:  Jack Kromer - Provided By:  Jack Kromer
(We'd like to thank photographer Jack Kromer for providing the photo above in a very timely way... Many of you will notice that's the same Wally Marks owned #1 that was on display this past Saturday at New Egypt Speedway.  The car was restored by former Modified Hot Shoe and 1970 Harmony Champ Ray Neary.  Ray used to work a lot with Wally and knew this car had to be saved and restored as a permanent reminder to the ingenuity that was Wally Marks.)

Answer:  Frank Cozze in the #10 and Billy Pauch in the #1.

Answers Received From:  Bill Regiec, John Larsen, Bill Hanna, Joe Hauser Sr., Steve Sabo, Paul Madsen, Rick Shive, Lester Potts, Rich Miller, Mike Stevens, Tom Gray, Brian Loutrel, Bobby Fiorello,

This is a really interesting photo in many ways...  One is that I don't remember Frank in the car, but we received word from Vault Visitor Brian Loutrel that Cozze put a Gremlin body on this car and renumbered it #44 for the next three seasons.  (I always wondered what happened to this car after Glen was done with it.)  The other thing that's interesting about this photo is that Billy had told us in the past that he had driven this #1 for Wally, but this is the first photo that we've found of it.  I'm sure there are others out there and hopefully you guys, and/or other sites will post them.  The current car owner, Ray Neary would probably love to see them!

Last Week's Trivia Question: (August 2008)

We asked:  Can you name this Bridgeport Racer?  We left just enough of his name on his roof to help provide a little hint...

July 31st Trivia:  How many can you name from this Orange County photo from October 28th, 1973?

Here's a combination of most of the answers we received:

Left to right - Bottom to top: 221 Jimmy Winks, 4 Lou Lazzaro, and maybe Bobby Bottcher in the #666 Coach on the bottom right, 9 Billy Ellis or Ronnie Leinbach or Paul Fitzcharles, 80 Bob Pickell, Red Gremlin Fred De Groot, 92 Coach Paul Bolgosh, 11A Henry Sharp, 41 Whiz Whizenand, (or Jack Duffy in the cream colored coupe along the #11a?), 5 Coach Walt Olsen, 99 Rene Charland or Maynard Forrette, 39 Andy Sident,  5 Bobby Gearhart, 1 Dick "Toby" Tobias or Hal Wilson, 76 Gerald Chamberlain, Frank Schneider # 2 Coach, 1 Bob Breeze, 45 Mike Grbac, or Oliver Butler.  Question for you guys:  any chance that the Gremlin on the far side of Pickell's #80 is the #643 of Ray Dalmaetti (sp?)

Once we post this in our 70's Section, you guys can add your final comments so that we get it squared away - Thanks for participating!
