Comment from Tim Hoffman: That's my dad driving the #24 in
the top 5 photos. This is the first stock car dad raced . It was owned
and built by Sonny & Jonny Strupp. It was probably the first car they
built because it doesn't look like a usual Strupp car!
The first time out with this car Dad won his heat race, the match race & was running third when he was involved in a wreck
The car was a sedan with a soft top in the center which they cut out . They then took leaf springs from a truck and welded them in place for a roll cage .
The bottom tow photos are of my dad getting out
of the car after a heat race or match race win. The man on the right
looking at the camera (bottom photo) is my uncle Wes Powell, the mailman
from Fairmont NJ .
