03/13/03 John Mc Yea, I know who it is, but I won't say. One hint, though: His car # was his initials. He used to come to my house w/ Jimmy Palko to hang around my dad's garage and help out. Thx, JMc
03/13/03 3-Wide John - Help me out with a year here if you remember.  Also, another visitor sent me a shot of the artwork he had on the rear of his car which was right in line with your P.S. comment.  As as soon as I find it, I'll post it.
03/13/03 John Mc Probably around 1978. He was from Hillsborough, pretty friendly w/ Don Church....John
03/19/03 John Larsen Who could ever forget Dave Durcacz. (Not sure of the spelling). Always a nice clean car.
01/27/04 John Arbruster P.S. More interesting trivia: he warmed up @ Flem one night w/ a DD bra hanging from the rear bumper (unknowingly, of course!).........
01/27/04 3-Wide Take a look at the next picture of this car (go back and then select the 2nd photo of the #DD and you'll know what all the fuss is about!
08/11/06 Dave Derkacz WOW!
What memories that brings back for me! Hey all, it's great to find this site! I only found out about it recently from Bob Ringen, who bought the car from me around 1979. The 70's was a great decade for dirt racing, especially at Flemington. That was my "home" for many seasons of racing, and I made some really good friends along the way.

I appreciate the photo that Tom Kocanowski submitted. Unfortunately, he died at an early age a couple of years ago...

I know I have more old photos stashed somewhere, and as soon as I can get them, I'll scan and submit. And yes, I'll also comment on the other pic as well. I still haven't found the one who attached that bra on the car, but I have a pretty good idea! ;-)
08/11/06 3-Wide Thanks for visiting the site.  We'll see if we can find a few more pics of the #DD.  Sorry to hear that Tom passed away.  He sent the photo to us sometime in early 2003.
