Jay Woodside with the Ted Hall Chevy



Jay looks different without the beard. The first race of the season in 1976 Jay pulled Jelly's 24 car to Dewey and was by himself so he followed Norman and pitted next to us and we helped him. We left Dewey and stopped to eat at a place in Owasso. This was the first time that my wife to be,Carol, had ever been around racers and the thing that she remembers the most is Jay getting gravy all over his beard. Is this the car that Jay won the Knoxville Nationals in?

Ray, This is the car that Jay won the Knoxville Nationals in 1966. And also one of two cars that helped him win the BCRA title that same year. Jay was also a popular winner at Belleville in 1966 in Pop Goodrich's Belle of Belleville. Ray C

Gordan Wooley



This is the same car that Greg Weld raced in 1965, to a second place finish in USAC behind Johnny Rutherford.

Eddie McVay



Eddie McVay was one of the top midget drivers in the history of racing in KC. His brother Jimmy won the last ever IMCA Midget race in 1970 at I-70 speedway.

Bob Daly in his car with a 430 Lincoln a Pikes Peak car



This was one of the cars that raced in BCRA, and was designed to race in the Pikes Peak Hill Climb. Bob still has this car, just as it raced in 1966.

Great photos Welder. Thanks for putting them up. I used to see all these drivers and cars at Belleville, twice a year. Curt Stockwell may have had the last big Offy to run there. Was surprised that these pictures didn't have Dale Reed, as he was always part of the Wichita gang. Also, that Lloyd Beckman was not in the 4X, or that it was not in any of the pictures.

Rusty,

I know Dale was there for the three day show. Possibly in the Belle of Belleville. In 1967 he would drive for Pius Selenke in his brand new #43. Over the years Dale drove sprints primarily for Pete Forshee, Pop Goodrich, and Pius.

In a 1959 IMCA race at Hutch, Dale beat Parnelli Jones among others for his first big victory in sprint car racing ,driving for Pete Forshee in his #3 sprinter. Dale was also a star in the BCRA, tying with Lloyd Beckman, Roy Bryant, Lonnie Jensen, and Jack Hahn for the most wins in BCRA history. He won his last BCRA race in 1968 at Belleville drivng the #43 car.

Lloyd was driving Pete Forshee's car #3 during the three day show at Hutch in 1966. He won one of the races, the others were won by Don Brown, and Gordon Woolley.

Chet & Grady Wade



 

"Big Red" was built over the winter in 56-57, and became one of the greatest sprint cars of the 1950's and 1960's.

Its Chevy power plant earned it the nickname "Offy Killer" for good reason, winning 30 times in IMCA competition,

with drivers that included Grady Wade pictured here, Gordon Woolley, Jud Larson, and of course the one and only

Harold Leep, the original driver for the car. Other drivers that drove this historic sprinter included, Roy Bryant,

Dale Reed, Cotton Musick, Al Chamberlain, and Jon Backlund among others.This car is featured prominently in

Donna Wilson's new book, Offy Killer, Chet Wilson-The Man behind the legend.

One of Lonnie Morsic's cars



Lonnie Morosic had some of the most unique sprint cars of the 1950's, 1960's and 1970's.

He had cars that ran off of propane, and besides this unique Indy style roadster, he built two rear engine cars

that ran almost exclusively on dirt. He was also one of the first owners to use a enclosed trailer to haul his racers!

PeeWee Dewease. Pappy Stockwell setting on right front tire



Is there any connection to Lance Dewease? He's from Pa. and his dad is named Stuart, but looking at them, they could be related.

Has anyone been in contact about coming to Belleville with it this summer? I would love to see it and I bet all fans from that era would get a kick out of it too. That car was one of the icons of the age.
