We asked:  "Can you name the driver of the Kenny Hammer owned #77 below?  At one time, this car was a different color and number and appears numerous times within The Vault.  For extra credit, name the car # (s) and/or driver(s) prior to it becoming the #77?"

Answer:  That's Johnny Leach in the Kenny Hammer owned #77.  The car was originally the black #9c of Howie Cronce, which then became the 9 Teen, which was owned by Kenny Hammer & driven by Jay Aten. It then became the #77 and was driven by Johnny Leach as pictured above.  On a sad note, we understand that Kenny Hammer passed away last month.  Our condolences to the family of Ken Hammer.

This Week's Trivia (July 2009) Question Brought to you by:

Many will recognize who is behind the wheel in the #73, but we asked:  Who's that in the #666 in this 1976 Jack Kromer photo?


Answer:  Gerald Chamberlain in the #666 & Gary Balough in the #73
Recap From Vault Visitor Rick Shive: 
That's Gerald Chamberlain in the 666,and Gary Balough in the 73.  This was the 1976 Nazareth Syracuse qualifier, and I'm sitting just up the hill from this pic in the 4th turn bleachers.  This was easily the best race I ever saw at Nazareth as these two ran like this almost the entire 100 laps, traded the lead several times.  (Balough won.)  This was one of the first races for the 73 King car, and maybe it's first feature win.  Rick Shive

(Other names received:  Bobby Bottcher, Wayne Reutimann, Kevin Collins, Bob Pickell, Tom Hager, Del George, Rags Carter, Ron Stashuk and Jimmy Kirk)

Correct Answers Received From:  Bill Hanna, G Washburn, Lester Potts & Bill Regiec, Rich Reinhart, Rick Shive, Willie & Barb, Rich Wolsky, Ned Stites III and Bobby Fiorello.
