Photo ID # c05.27.06_616_GRB_EWS_0070_1
Car #: #616
Driver (s) : Mike Grbac
Location: East Windsor Speedway
Date: 1976 or 77
Photographer: Ace Lane Jr.
Photo provided by: Ray (sorry Ray... I forgot your last name!)
Comments: Here's a picture of Mike in Victory Lane with the #616 usually driven by Ron Stashuk.  From what I hear, Mike and Ron were good friends and it looks like Mike found the fast way around in the orange #616 built by "Knucklehead" as mentioned on the 1/4 panel!

You gotta wonder how many of us are hanging on the fence in the background of this photo!

06/03/06 Walter Onora What a great driver! Still missed today!! Mike was a man of many rides. I remember Mike driving the family owned 7, the King Chevrolet mount out of Staten Island, also the Acella modified, Joe Leto's 50,and so many other modifieds. He was one of my favorites!!!
06/04/06 John Larsen Who knew at the time that this would be the last time that we would see Mike stand in victory lane with a feature win. Mike was running a solid race but sure wasn't going to be able to catch and pass the Jim Horton III #43 car when suddenly Horton pulled off the track on the backstretch handing Mike the win in the Stashluk #616.
06/04/06 Kevin McElvane funny you say that Joe.   In the 1970s photos from EWS I always try to see if Im in the stands or hanging on the fence in the victory lane fotos too.
06/05/06 John McCaughey Like Kevin Mc, if we were using some of the hi-tech equip from the show "24", if we take this pic back to CTU to be examined, I'll bet I'd be standing there in the background, too! Probably right next to you, Kev! LOL!
