Comment: Joe Hall sure did make things interesting in the
Sportsman division! He probably had more fans than all but a handful
of modified drivers, and it was because his on track performance was equally
matched with his pre-race/post-race excitement.
During his first lap around the track, Joe would hold the clinched fist to the sky as a salute to his many fans who would always respond with the same clinched fist salute. It was a way of Joe saying, "Are you with me?"... and the crowd responding with, "We're riding with you on this one Joe!"
As seen in the photo above, Joe's excitement continued right on through to victory lane, with a victory fist, and a big "Joe Hall" smile.

We had one good running 327+.030 cubic inch Chevy engine in Joe's race car. I was experimenting with rocker arm stud girdles. We had broken a couple on some other small block engines when we used to much rear gear. Ray Neary was in charge of handling and wanted to run a lower gear ratio. So by eliminating rocker arm stud flex we could turn more engine RPM. Also had on the engine a set of Crane Fireball ported and polished steel heads.
Borrowed the rocker arm girdle idea from the drag racers. Some say we had a drag racer “ We would drag it to the races and drag it home” This is a quote from the great Lenny Martin.
