1/11/09 DALE WELTY This picture is at the Five Mile Point Speedway a quarter mile near Binghamton NY. They still operate ever Saturday night with Big Block -Small Block Modifieds as the headline class. I'll never forget that horrible crash at Rolling Wheels Raceway when Jackie got quite badly burned.

 This Joe Lawrence #16 Coach was built in 1968 by Joe Lawrence and Pete Jackson. It was originally driven by Jim Markle, the driver of the Joe Lawrence cars (#95, #82) after the death in 1963 of DD Harris, the driver of Joe's #"AAA" cars.

Work commitments caused Markle to curtail his racing and Rene Charland drove the car in a couple All Star Racing League shows and the '68 Lebanon Valley 200.

I believe that former National Go Cart Champion Jackie Wilson's first-ever race in a Modified came in his attempt to qualify this car for the 1968 Eastern States 200 at Middletown.
