from Russ: This is a great shot of Jim Fodor standing with his arm on the window
opening in the door. Fodor welding, Trenton, was found on the side of the Fred Brian owned
Circle A cars. His cars were driven by Donnie Hughes, Bob Pickell, Lee Hendrickson and
Charley Cregar, for the most part, I recall. Later Jim would become the car owner and
field the famous 13's driven by Sam Beavers, Joe Kelly and a few others.
Charley Cregar sits by the front of the door. Now for the test of the memory. Who are the other two gentlemen pictured? Having traveled as a pit crew member with a modified for the 1969 season, I know the hours I put in as a minor player and gofer in the operation. I also know that my role was deeply appreciated and did add to the better operation of the team.
Let's give these "behind the scene" guys some credit. (I know also, it may be an old friend visiting the track for the night and really has nothing to do with the car.) Does anyone know the others in the picture and or the year of the photo?
Thanks, Russ Dodge

|02.13.12||Hap||Russ: I believe this picture is on the occasion of a 1963
feature win at Flemington. See page 9 of the 3 January 2012 AARN. Fred Bryan
is next to my father & a pit crew member (last name Stark) is on the right
next to CC. My father helped Fred build the car (Fred Bryans’ first & only
coupe) & it was maintained at his welding shop. The year before Fred had
moved from his shop in Lawrenceville (Cold Soil Road). Later that year my
father bought it from Fred & it became the first 13. It was still trimmed in
blue (always a white car) when Tom Green drove it for a short time. Sammy
Beavers followed & the trim was changed to the red & black it was known for
during the rest their history. Hap
