Answers Received: Dick Haven's in the white #9, John Kamjati in the blue #303, (not sure of the white coupe with a #7" on the door, with the red hood but don't think it's the Big Donkey #707, or the Jerry Allen #71...), still not sure of the gold sedan..., and Mark Yaple knew that it was Frank Mangone in the white coupe being towed by the Mustang!
As far as the cars on the track, the pink and white sedan leading the field may be the #2a of Bill Bounders, the orange car with the blue roof is the #337 of Fred Dealamann and the third car is the white and baby blue/green trimmed #13 of Joseph Kelly (from Hamilton).

Trivia Question Posted 5/14/06: We asked: "WHERE IN THE HECK ARE WE?"
Answer: East Windsor Speedway! (We knew we were being a little tricky as most of us only remember the Sportsman and Modifieds at EWS, but according to you guys, these are the "Foreign Stock's Division".)
Here's additional info from Vault Visitor George Perkins: "Although none of them look familiar, they look like "foreign stocks" at East Windsor. These guys ran during the mid sixties at a number of tracks, most notably E.W., Old Bridge, Wall and FT. Dix. They mainly ran as a traveling circuit but I think they ran weekly at Ft. Dix in 65'. Since I don't rcognise any cars my guess would be 67 or later."
In addition to that, Kevin McElvain added this little gem: "When I was very young. (Im talking pre-school) Wall Stadium ran a class called foreign cars. I suppose nowadays theyd be called 4 cylinder stocks. I remember this because we were heading there and dad kept talking about the "Foreign Cars" and I thought he was saying "Farm Cars". Being only 3 or 4 I assumed these were cars that farmers used to drive around the farm.
And here's what Vault Tech Contibutor Mark Yaple had to say: "My favorite track of all time, hands down, East Windsor. The cars were called "Foreign Compacts" that ran occasionally at EWS. The hot shoes in that class were modified driver Dick Lewis out of Cream Ridge, NJ and Ed Leip from Trenton. The class ran regularly at The Fort Dix Speedway in the sixties. Thanks for the great shot, it has again brought back some great memories from the past.
And here's what the photographer Mike Schaub had to say about this photo: " I came across this picture from East Windsor showing the mini-stocks getting ready to go onto the track. I took the picture and I believe it was in the mid-late 60's. Don't know any names of the drivers, but the blue and black cars are Morris Minors. They were great little cars. I had one. They were roomier then a VW with the engine in the front."

Trivia Question Posted 5/07/06: We asked: "Can you name 10?"
Well, as it turns out, we're not real sure if any of us could name the top 10... Here's what you guys came up with: #17 Phil Meisner, #111 Del George (although Pete Madsen and Stan Ploski also drove the #111 at different times), #K46 Kerry Schloeder, #23 Glenn Fitzcharles (although somebody pointed out that Chamberlain also drove this car a time or two), either Hal Browning #55 or Frank Cozze #44 or we're really not sure!, #64 Ken Johnson, #24 Newt Hartman, #24 Ken Brenn Jr., #27 Stan Ploski, #49 Fritz Epright, .... and as far as the last 2 cars we received Tom Gilman and Tom Hager most often, but we're really not sure...

Trivia Question Posted 4/23/06: "We asked: "Can you tell us the names of the 2 driver's pictured below?"
Answer: Glenn Fitzcharles #R10 and Paul Fitzcharles #81
Brothers Glenn Fitzcharles and Paul Fitzcharles had this on track incident coming out of turn 4 at East Windsor Speedway. Glenn ended up going up and over after the two made contact. Paul ended up stopping his car and ran all the way back to the scene to check on the condition of brother Glenn. From what we hear, he was so out of breathe that he couldn't speak and at first the arriving ambulance crew thought he was the one who had wrecked and wanted to take him to the hospital!

Trivia Question Posted 3/19/06: We asked: "Can you name the driver of the #86 Sprint Car pictured below from these 1950's Reading photos?"
Here's a the clue that we provided: Although he may not have impressed many on this particular day behind the wheel of the #86, he certainly was heard by many thoughout most of the next 4 decades....
Answer: BILL SINGER driving the Jack's Garage #86 Sprint car at Reading in the 1950's.
Bill always had a love for sprint cars, but I'm sure many more of us know of Bill from the years of listening to him announce at Flemington, East Windsor, Trenton and other speedways.
His sister Grace tells us that "He must have been a kid in his early 20's. He lied about his age and started racing when he was only 16-17 yrs old and my mother and father didn't know about it until one night they received a call from a hospital that he had crashed and was hurt. Racing was in his blood at a very young age."

Trivia Question Posted 3/12/06: We asked: "Can you name both drivers? (First and last names...) How about the location?"
Answer: Richie Evans and Barney Truex.... we think.... definitely at New Egypt Speedway... Some tell us that at the time the photo was taken (early 80's) some still referred to it as the "Fort Dix Speedway". Other answers received regarding the driver of the red #59 included Martin Truex Sr., Gil Hearne, Jerry Cramner, and Merv Treichler. We're sticking with Barney Truex as the answer, however some feel pretty strongly that it may have been either Gil or Jerry on this particular day in Barney's car. (Check out the closeup below - without "Truex" blurred out on the door.)
Additional Info: According to many Vault Visitors, others in the photo include Bill Brice (with yellow flag) and Nascar Modified Chief Steward Big Bob O'Rourke.

Trivia Question Posted 3/5/06: We asked: "Can you name the driver pictured below?"
We're thinking that many of you first saw the yellow #27 and instantly thought... "I KNOW WHO THAT IS..." Well, not so fast....!
Although this fellow is a relative of the guy you might be thinking of, he is an accomplished driver who drove his own #27 Sportsman, #50 Modified (Feature winner at EWS), The Burket #27KC, and who can now be found driving his own car on the URC circuit.
And the answer is.... Joe Zuczek!
We kinda thought some of you saw the yellow with red trim #27 and quickly thought it was Stan Ploski... We also found out that Scott Purcell was a pretty popular guess too as many of you remembered that he too ran a yellow #27 Sportsman... When not racing his #50 URC Sprint Car, Joe can be found at his Robbinsville, NJ business making race cars look a whole lot cooler in his sign and lettering shop.

Trivia Question Posted 2/25/06: We asked: "Can you name the driver below?"
Answer: Jeff Heotzler (I changed the photo above to one where his name is not blurred out on the side.)
Many of you including John McCaughey, Scott Pacich, Paul Madsen Greg Chelak, Rick Shive, Mark Flamisch and Matt Bahre pointed out that this car had a Weld chassis.
Here's some additional info from Matt regarding whether this is a Weld car:
The (#1) original Weld car ended up with some boys from Newtown Ct. I can't quite remember the exact year but I think it was somewhere between 79 to 81. The 4 link front end was scrapped and outboard coil overs were mounted. The rear end was also changed to a more offset right rear setup. Billy O ran the car and won with it at Middletown. Ed Delmolino also ran the car and did well at Middletown. I remember visiting the shop in Newtown, CT but can't remember the names.
I believe they did hook up with Jeff Heoltzer at some point and I believe I remember Heoltzer running the car successfully at Accord. The car in the picture sure (99%) looks like it is that car. It seems to me I remember hearing the car was completely destroyed at Accord at some point. Imagine... this is the car that started it all! Matt Bahre
Here's some additional info from Greg Chelak regarding whether this is a Weld car:
In 1980 Jeff had two rides - The Weld # 2 & the Slingerland #25 Gremlin. I was just coming off an injury received in racing the year before  and Jeff on occasion asked me to drive one or the other in the feature. Back then it was legal to qualify more then one car for an event. (The picture sent earlier of the #25 is Greg Chelak Driving!) I drove those cars in 1980.
The weld car was purchased by Jeff and made into the coupe "Hazel". Jeff won 17 features at Accord with it the first year out. I cannot remember how many seasons he campaigned it but the Weld car was for certain turned into a coupe [which I never Drove].
Jeff and I remain friends thru today - Jeff Drove my big block car #90 in 1999 - Jeff works at Behrents Speed Center in Florida New York. Yes the # 2 Weld ride is the coupe.
"Good Time" Greg Chelak

"Innovation" Trivia Question Posted 2/11/06: We asked: "Can you name the driver below?"
For this week's question, we decided to feature a competitor who possibly only the "Flemington Faithful" and a few of us EWS'rs will remember... and that's ok... In fact, I don't think I ever remember seeing this driver win a Modified Feature... at least not in one of the little cars pictured below. But it really doesn't matter.
The history books show the win totals... and the Champions... But for some of us...the sport will always mean more to us than the statistics will ever reveal. There was a time when there was room in our sport for those willing to be different. And for those of us who had an eye for those cars that were special... (those that stood apart from the norm... those that just flat out looked "COOL")... we noticed. It was because of those cars and the innovators who built and drove them, that we returned week after week... year after year.
Forever.. or so we thought.
Sadly, career ending injuries suffered in a accident at Flemington never gave us the chance to see the little silver #8X pull into victory lane... To give us all a chance to let the driver know how many of us did notice...
His cars are among some of our all time favorites, and it's that innovation and individual spirit - the ability of men to create a car, put it to the test... and return another day if able with new ideas and more innovation - that our site is dedicated to.
We asked: "Can you name the driver of the silver #8X picture in the above 3 photos?
ANSWER: Mike McNamara

Trivia Question Posted 1/29/06 (Question 1): "Can you name the track below?"
Answer: The old Nazareth 1/2 mile.
Those who seem to be in the know are telling us that the picture is actually taken as the cars are coming out of turn 2 and headed down the backstretch before they put the tin up... We've also been told that it's Bobby Pickell in the #28 and Rags Carter in the #73. (See the comment below from Anthony Ferraiuolo IV when we asked him if it was Whip Mulligan or Rags Carter driving the #73 at this time.)
"That is without a doubt Rags Carter. I remember that uniform, that helmet, and that watch. That is the " Ragman " for sure. Although I was only 12 years old when he came to drive for us in the middle of the 1970 season. In fact it was the old "all-star" race at OCFS. And yes he won the race that night! To say that I miss Rags Carter would be an understatement." Thanks for the memories - Anthony IV

Trivia Question Posted 1/22/06 (Question 2): We asked: "Can you name the driver in our "Show & Go" Trivia photo below?"
Photo by: Ace Lane Jr.
One of the all time best looking cars to grace the track in the early 80's at Flemington was fabricated and driven by the owner/driver pictured above, who due to other commitments wasn't able to race full time at the Square, but still managed to find victory lane on a couple of occassions. Always known for having great looking cars, this driver (in a different car than above) also won 2 sportsman features at the Square on the same day! (Thanks for the additional info Mark Burd & Rich Miller)
