|11/07/08||Bill Van||Part of the pedigree of that coupe is:
Jack Tant/Clayton Mitchell #11 with Ray Hendrick driving. That's really a guess because I always suspected that it might have been built for Dick Armstrong. But that's a guess too. I cannot say if it is in fact the same car that Ray Hendrick won with at Langhorne (on his first try).
Next: It was the #1 bought & owned by Armstrong & driven by Hop Harrington (spelled?) and probably Geoff Bodine.
Later: purchased from Armstrong by the Sculthorpes of Farmingdale NJ who were then owners of the "2JR" number at Wall. Don Stives was one of their drivers. I was pretty impressed.
This car "always" had an independent front suspension, was once owned by Pat Keeley, and is NOT the Stives' coupe recently driven in GSVSCC shows. Later (and maybe more precise) data will have to come from someone else. How about it, Earl? - Bill Van
