Answer to Trivia Question Posted 12/25/05:

We Asked:  How Many of These Mid 70's Flemington Modifieds can you name, and what turn do you think it is?

Flem_triv_12.25.05.jpg (83045 bytes)

Well... we've got quite a few of you in the "A Main", but don't think any of us made it to the pole... and that's because none of us are sure about that first Gremlin...

Here's the rundown:   1st - ?,  2nd Joe Conti #42 or Billy Mitchell,  3rd Craig McCaughey #301,  4th Lee or Larry Taylor (Wally Mark's #1),  5th Red Coffin #22.  Also, many of you knew that the cars are in turn 2.  
(This may not be the end of it as some of the names for the other cars received were 1st: Ron Stashuk, Fred DeGroot in the #616, Ray Kozimore #37J or Bob Barone #7B..., 2nd Bill Mitchell... and we had a few who think the 5th car is either Fred Orchard #406 or Bob Pollack #48 but it has been verified as Red Coffin's #22 with Miller's Volkswagon as a sponsor.

Trivia Question Posted on 11/20/05:

There was a time when you watched the races, you watched the drivers.  ... I mean you really saw "the men in the machines."  You saw the way they gripped the wheel... sometimes with elbows up!  You noticed the size of the steering wheel and their helmet style.   If fact, I'll bet that when many of you think of your favorite drivers from the 70's, you picture them inside their car, manhandling their machine around your favorite track! 

Below is a picture of one such driver that many of us will never forget. 

We asked: 
"Can you name the driver below?  We blurred out the car# to make it a little tougher, but for you 70's EWS and Flemington regulars, we're confident that you'll recognize one of the Vault's all time favorites."

Trivia Question Posted on 10/02/05 Brought to You by:  automiddle1.jpg (33136 bytes)
We asked:   "Can you tell us who that is on the homestretch at Flemington in this mid 70's photo trying to get Harry's Dee's attention?"

Hey_Harry_Trivia.jpg (132287 bytes)
Photo by Wayne Bechtel - Provided by Wayne Bechtel

And the Answer is:   Craig McCaughey, driver of the #301 Chevette bodied modified.

Many of you weighed in with the particulars surrounding this photo, and the best we can tell is that Craig was disputing a call made by the officials.  Long before the days of radios, the only way to get your point across was to stop your car in front of Harry's stand and hope Harry would jump down and listen to your concern...  If that didn't work, the driver would then get out of his car..  and as you can imagine, with a full grandstand watching, the drama got pretty high!.  (We're not real sure who the car is on the inside, but some of the possibilites that you guys provided are the #24 of Newt Hartman, the #9c of Howie Cronce....) 

Emotions run high at the track... and with as much on the line, its easy to see why.   Whether it was a dispute about a starting position on a restart... or about being blamed for a wreck that was not your fault, sometimes, a driver felt he had to be heard!

Craig
was passionate about his racing... and about racing in general.   Some will remember that it was Craig that stepped up to help address the racing surface issues on the 5/8ths mile clay, and can remember seeing him operating the heavy equipment on many occassions.

We asked "Can you name BOTH of these drivers standing next to the #24?"

b09.12.05_024_MYS_PIC_0070_1.jpg (76022 bytes)
Here's a closer look:
b09.12.05_024_MYS_PIC_0070_sm.jpg (74170 bytes)

ANSWER:  Paul Newman and Will Cagle!
We are told that Paul was in the NY area shooting a movie called "Slapshot" and met up with Will to take a ride in the #24 at either Weedsport, Rolling Wheels... or somewhere up there.
*Note from Vault Visitor Tom Hart:  I looked up and found that 3 of the 4 filming locations were in NY State (Hamilton, Syracuse and Utica). The film was released in Feb. '77 which means the picture is
probably from the '76 season.

Answer:  Ebby Ridge - We remember Ebby driving a yellow coupe and then this car which was owned by Butch Klien in the early to mid 70's.  I'm told that this is the same team that Ken Johnson drove for as many of you remembered the black #64 sponsored by Moly Black Gold.

Correct Answer: Sammy Beavers in the Scarmadella #121 Sponsored by King Chevrolet.  We think it was 1972 or 1973 that Sammy drove this sedan along with his teamate who drove the #122.  Sammy's teamate was non other than Fred Dmuchowski!  (Probably the only time Fred ever drove anything that wasn't yellow with a big #303 on the side of it!)

Second Question also Posted August 6th, 2005
We asked:  "Can you name any of these early 70's East Windsor competitors?"
b08.08.05_041_MYS.jpg (67472 bytes)


 

 

 

 

 

 

 

ANSWER:   Well... here goes....
We do know that it's Rich Swangler in the #043 (which according to co-builder and crew member Andy Styner, was owned by Bob Goodwin of Hamilton, NJ), and that's about all that we do know...

We had a few guesses that the car hidden behind the #043 could be an early Stan Ploski #27 or possibly a Suzstak (sp?) #37, although many of us can't remember Jules or Geza in anything but the old white coupe.  Greg C from "Peak Racing Equipment" adds that  he thinks it's the #67, which was a light  yellow car that Gary Riley from Yonkers, New York drove.  He adds that Gary was a sportsman regular at Middletown but on rare occasions ran East Windsor.

As far as the #36 goes, most of us thought it was Hank Goranson Jr., and with the photo provided below from Greg C from "Peak Racing Equipment", I think we might be right:

036_Goranson.JPG (124388 bytes) 036_primer_GOr.JPG (110270 bytes)
Note window cut and windscreen on the car on the left and the primered roof car on the right

Check out the way the #'s are written, along with the severe 90 degree cut for the driver's window right next to where Hank's right hand is in the shot above and compare it to the trivia photo.  Greg C also mentioned that Hank did run sportsman right around this time.  Thanks for the detective work Greg - Here's another mention for "Peak Racing Equipment: www.peakracingequipment.com  

This just in from Vault Visitor John Hanna:  GREG KNOWS HIS STUFF!
THE 36 IS DEFINITELY HANK GORANSON Jr. THE RED ROOF IS PRIMER FROM A FLIP AT FLEMINGTON N.J IN 1971.  THE CAR IN TRIVIA QUESTION IS THE YELLOW 36.  THE CAR WITH HANK AND CREW IS CAR PURCHASED FROM RON THEIL. I WAS ON THE CREW.  ALSO IN THE PICTURE AT THE RIGHT WITH THE CREW THERE IS 2 DRIVERS FROM THE 60'S - THE ONE ON THE LEFT, PERSON STANDING AT THE REAR OF CAR IS ED O'NEAL (HE RACED A # 63 @ FLEMINGTON.  THE NEXT PERSON IS BILL HUMPHRY WHO RACED WITH THE MASONS @ FLEMINGTON AND DROVE THE #123 ,(AND LATER WAS ON THE KEN BRENN CREW).  THEN IS HANK GORANSON Jr , HIS DAD HANK SR. WHO RACED aaa SPRINT CARS AND HAD FIELDED A CAR FOR SEVERAL YEARS, WHEN SAM NUNIS RAN THE ORGANIZATION,  AND MYSELF STANDING ON THE RIGHT.
KEEP UP THE GREAT WORK ITS ENJOYED !!  - JOHN HANNA

We asked:   "Can you identify this very popular Flemington Late Model driver who then became a very consistent Modified runner?  (We blurred out the number to make it a little tougher for all you diehard 80's guys and gals...)  Here's a hint:  "As fast as he ran, nobody would dare call him slow..."

Answer:  Matt Slowinski!   We often get requests for more pictures of Matt here in the Vault as Matt was always a very popular competitor... whether in a Late Model or in a Modified.

We're not quite sure if this is what ZZ Top had in mind with their 80's hit record...   That's photographer Bill Young in the snazzy white shoes on the left, with Fritz Epright and Billy Pauch in the Leisure Suits (center and right)?"
Here's the hint that we provided:  Both won Modified Feature Events during the month of June - 2005! 
(New clue from Vault Visitor Paul Madsen:  "They were also both driving cars with the #1 on it during their most recent feature wins!)
