Nothing like watching Sammy come from the back at the Chili Bowl!!!

This one has to be my favorite. It was built around 1961 at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway garages by the late Lujie Lesovsky for Elmer George, Tony George's father. He later sold it to A.J. Foyt who is pictured in it. It ran as the Traco Special. The car was purchased from Foyt by Frank Wagner of St. Paul, MN and was driven by Jerry Richert and Jerry "Scratch" Daniels, among others.

It's my favorite because I had the opportunity to drive it when I warmed it up a a track up this way.


Fenders ? We don't need no stinking fenders !!!

Man, I wish sprint cars still looked like this! It's cars from that era that first made me a race fan. I've been in the pits at Perris a few times when Jimmy Oskie brought out that black sprinter (is it the King O' Lawn special?). In any case, that is one of the most beautiful things I've ever seen, race car or otherwise.

I believe one of these cars are the same car pictured above in SJ Fast's post. This is Reichert and Daniels in Florida Nationals race (I think)....

Lauren.....Yep ! The white/blue car on the left is the former Elmer George car. The #63 was the Wagner team car. Here's a shot of that #63 car a few years later when it ran as a super with Jerry "Haircut" Lepinski in the seat. At the time it was owned and wrenched by Tom Wilke who is a cousin of StanM of Minnesota Dirt Track Racing website fame. Smile
