Me, "helping" Dad. I probably wasn't much help, but he never said so, and never discouraged me.
Dad, with a torch!! Changes are coming...
The '58 Ford had a 292 with 3 dueces and a 3 speed trans. It didn't have nearly enough gear even running through 2nd gear in the tranny.
These pictures from the backyard truly reveal the roots of Backyard Racing.
A name Dad thought up when I was Drag racing. Very appropriate!!
Dad and Dave Chase's '64 Chevy,,,, bumpers locked in battle. They did a couple of laps like this, trying to untangle.
If you look real hard you'll see Al Franks in the B feature results in the left article and in the C feature results in the right article.
Dad at age 65 and me, racing in 1997. The only picture of both of us on the track together. He is in my brother Tracy's 89 car and I'm in the #1 car.
The 89 had a nearly stock 283 and a glide trans. Dad pushed her hard!
Dad, in '98, three years before he died. Helping as always.
