I think the primer job was repairs from that crash. Thats was pretty hellacious. We went down there after that and I remember seeing blood on the door. I think I was 8 or 9 at the time. :D

I remember the blood on the door too. I was 4 or 5, an age you don't really deveop coherent memories. But I remember the car hitting the bus and the blood and my mom being really disturbed.

The 9 is Bill Elliott. He brought his own car the next year. Chad Little won in a JR car and Elliott crashed.

I really appreciate you posting those. If you need help, I can scan as many as you have. I would love to see them.

And here's another of Rick's car, before it got the traditional Fox colors. I believe Bob is driving here. Behind, I think Butch Mentry and Vern Roberts in Fox's former car.

That is Don Dowdy in the 42 Chevelle outside Hershall, the rest are right.

Now that's an awesome picture of Eaton with the injection, I'd never heard about that before.  I wonder why he changed his number from 5 to 7?  I asked him that about 20 years ago, but I don't remember what he told me.  Anybody else know?

I also asked Bob Fox why he changed his number from 99 to 90 years ago.  If I remember right he said it was because Chuck Heaton was already running 99.

That original Fuge car of Flora's posted earlier, that's what a open comp stock car should look like.  That was one of my favorites.

Chuck#16, you ever race a convertible?

No did not race convertibles.

Here is a shot from Spanaway that really hurts. That 1955 Ford Crown Victoria in the infield has me crying. I want it!!!!!!

I'm trying to think of all the old #5s, but I don't remember a whole lot about the ELSCAN series.  Didn't Don Hume run #5?  Later I remember Ed Raines running #05, and Sam Darnell too.  And Ed Curry running #5 after buying one of Eaton's 6 cylinder cars.

I'm trying to recall who the drivers are in Chuck#16's latest photo.  I think that's Chuck Chambers Sr. in the infield in the #25.  I know the #73 is Ed Wilson, and I think the one with the #9 and the stripe is J.J. Zaffino in the old #94?  I don't remember the others.  That sure brings back memories though.

I remember Don Lorenz showing up at Spanaway for a SCAR race with a wing mounted on the roof of his Mustang super stock.  That opened a can of worms.

OK..Here is the skinny..the rules for car numbers as far as ELSCAN goes were kinda like NHRA. Where you finished the previous year in points was the number you ran the next year. 5th in points, hence the number 5.. the finish he had going in the next to last year of Elscan was 7th. So that gave him the number 7. He ran that number in the last year of ELSCAN and has retained it since. That is right from Ron himself..

Rickt :cool:

Not me, I've never been to Umatilla, and not too many ELSCAN races either. 

Rick, Thanks for clearing up the number question.  I kind of liked that rule, SCAR used to do that too where the top ten in points had the option to run that number the next year.  Guys like Bernie Hines would hang on to that #1 for a few years.  I also think most racers have a story to tell about how they came up with their number, and how it has some meaning to them.  I find that kind of stuff pretty interesting, could probably start a new thread on it.

sidelines04, Please tell us about the Mopar in your avatar, I don't recognize it.

Bob46 - Are you the Bob in the Blue #46 Mustang from the early eighties? That was a great looking car. If you have any photos you'd like scanned, I can help.

The #25 Mopar Avatar is the late Larry Detjens, Chris and Scott Wimmer's uncle. He and Mike Miller came west to run the big races like Larry Phillips and Joe Ruttman did before. Detjens won the October race (the Rose Classic) at All American Speedway a couple times. I think he also raced the October Shasta race. Someone told me he raced at Monroe a few times, but I can't find anything to confirm this. 

This is the car he won at Roseville with. It was white the next year. The photo is Matt Sullivan's.

Hope you guys don't mind a new guy chiming in to your thread... 

Yes, Larry Detjens did run that car at Shasta in October of 1980 at the Western 150 and had em covered till the car started to smoke and slow down. Don Harper ran him down and won the race at that point. I was 17 and loved seeing Larry come out west to race with our guys. Several of the midwest stars loved to come to sunny California and take the money home and did that on several occasions over several years. 

The best thing was Larry came back in March of 81 and won the Nor-Cal 150 at Shasta in the white Bemco chassied Camaro shown below.

Seeing a couple of photos of Wintson West cars in this thread made me want to add a couple of my own.

Here's Art Roth and Jimmy Insolo from 1977. Does anyone recognize the racetrack?

That wasn't me in the blue Mustang, but I do remember that car.  Back in the '80s I was driving either a crappy white Vega or assorted beat up black GM hobby cars at Spanaway.  I'll try to get some more pictures scanned and posted soon.

I think Pete from Moss Bros. signs was at the race that Larry Detjens was killed.  If I remember right, he told me about it, at Milwaukee I think.  Pete used to be a fixture around the Spanaway racing scene, lettered a ton of race cars.  He grew up in Wisconsin.  I don't know if he's still around or not.

Not at all. Thanks for the posts and pics hi plains. -- It looks like All American Speedway to me. St. James Davis in the background. What else do you have? If you don't want to fill up the board, you can email me. chrisc04@yahoo.com, I'd like to make a web site dedicated to this kind of stuff if I can get enough material. The more the better!

I agree with Bob and Rick, the cars looked great then. But even more than that, I liked how they were being built, how fast the technology was changing, how innovative you could be.
