....Looks familiar...This time it's grandson Clay Butler in the red #4.  (Many will remember Oliver Butler wheeling the Silliman #4 in the early 70's.)

Looks familiar too!  Can't look at this one and not think of Ken Johnson...   Rookie campaigner Joe Baumann got the #64 upside down during the Rookie Feature but got the sunny side back up in short order.

Mike Brannigan has been doing a great job since hopping into the Tony P owned #175.   Mike is the grandson of Jim Brigg's who was the owner/driver of the #X-15 back in the 70's and 80's.  Not sure but I think Mike used to trade paint with us at Go Kart Speedway in Berlin, NJ!

Speaking of Go Kart Speedway, we didn't see Rob Pierce anywhere around as he was probably at Bridgeport, but the fine folks from A-1 Racing Products were on hand in a big way.   (Bridgeport Sportsman racer, 3 Wide's Picture Vault original Tech Support Specialist and now A-1 Racing Products Specialist Rob Pierce has helped out a lot of people along the way.  Thanks Rob!

Speaking of the Hendershots, it was great to see Don Hendershot back where he belongs, working with his son Mike shown above, and his son Bob in the photo above this one!

Stop by "The Vault" in the picnic area on your next visit to New Egypt.   Stu Popick enjoys the night by working with his clay sculptures and showing just exactly how he does it...  Inside the Vault you'll find photos, pictorials, programs and other items of interest to us old guys!
