We asked:  "How many can you name?"


Answers Received:  We think the #3 is either Larry or Lee Taylor in possibly a very early "Statewide Special" (or possibly Harry McConnell.  We're also not sure of the orange coupe but it could be Leon Altemose or Dave Sassaman #667 - #669) and probably Frank Kelly in the blue sedan (#31K).  That's the Silliman #4 red coupe on the right in the pits (driver Oliver Butler), Pete Chesson's #76 Pinto in the pits on the left driven by either Stan Ploski or Billy Osmun...  We also received other answers for some of the others way in the background, but if your monitor is like mine, they're pretty tough to see clear enough to be sure.  Here's a little better look:

Here's the Answer to our 4/01/09 Trivia Question:


Photo By: Ned Stites III - Provided By: Ned Stites III

We asked:  "Can you identify the car # and the driver of the Gremlin above from this Flemington photo?"
Here's a few clues:  We erased the # from the car above to make it more difficult because this car had a very "recognizable #"...  The car also usually had a very "recognizable paint scheme", although in the photos above, it looks like it was still in light gray primer...  which is very strange since this was usually one of the nicest looking modifieds in the pits!  (The number that was on the car that we erased was only on there with black tape which indicates to us that this was either very early in the year, or the car had just come back from a serious accident the week before.)

Answer:  Fritz Epright in the Norcia #81. 





Here's some additional info received from a Vault Visitor "Spilly" that might explain what happened:  "I believe this was Fritz Epright's last ride in the Norcia #81 at Flemington. I was there that day. If I'm right, here's the story as I remember it.

I believe this happened the day of a Flemington 200. The Norcia boys had just finished this car, didn't even have time to letter it.  They were there for a shakedown run with this car. I was told by a reliable source that Fritz was given specific instructions to "take it easy". Well, he was immediately on the gas during warm ups, and he was flying!"

"The next thing you know, he goes in to the turn one fence seemingly wide
open. Evidently the throttle stuck.  The Norcia team was pretty upset with the situation..."


We're not sure how much (or if any) of the above info is accurate, but it sounds very possible, and we do know from the original photographer/provider that it is the Black Horse #81, and we do know that it was one of Flemington's all time best "Fritz Epright" behind the wheel.  (We also know that race drivers are supposed to step on the "right" pedal, more than the "left" so sounds like Fritz was doing his job and something unfortunate happened!)

Paul Madsen, John Toth, Rob Spilatore, Ray705, Michael Kent, Biker1300vtx, Rich Scott, and Tom Ragno.

6 Pack Trivia...  We asked:  "Can you name the top 6 cars and drivers....  We're not going to get the magnifying glass out for the rest of them, so we're only looking for the top 6.... "


Photo By Bill (?) Farress/Provided by Bill Faress (Jr?)

3.  #3 Bugs Stevens
4.  #58 Merv Treichler
5.  #7 Lee Osborne (car usually driven by Dutch Hoag)
6.  #69 Jean Guy Chartrand


Where pretty sure the photo is from the 1970 Race of Champions which was won by Merv Treicher (in the maroon #58 coupe above).  We're also told that Lee Osborne was in the #7 Genesee Valiant on this day (usually driven by Dutch Hoag) and we're told that he flipped it on lap 144).  Thank you to Jim Brewer and others who provided detailed info to support the photo above.

Great job by all.  It's also good to see the kind of impact the originality and ingenuity of guys like Peppy Fernandez has had on so many of us.  I only got to see Peppy run a few times at Flemington in a Fastback Mustang bodied car, but his cars, and in this case, how he got them to the track are a big part of why we can't leave those great days of short track racing behind.  -3Wide
