Darrell Stingerie history?
Could someone tell me about Darrell's career? In the 65-65 we were friends. I grew up in Thornton around the corner from his hous and was part of his un-official "pit crew" of his baby blue 57 Ford "45" he drove at Erie. I lost track of him when I was sent to Vietnam. Thanks - Chuck Provow

I knew Darrell briefly in the late 1990's when he raced a beautiful mod coupe with the CARC at Second Creek Raceway. He was also president of the club and a really good guy, too.
He had a body shop and did great work! He recently passed away.

I really liked Darrell, he was always really cool to me. A great guy to talk to!

Here's just a few pics I've ran across from his long career.....
(Jay Newton collection) Darrell Stingerie with the Garrison Tenneco Figure 8 from 1964.

the late '60's.
(John Verhoeff photo) Darrell's cool Mustang from 1975 at Englewood Speedway.
(Photo by Jerry Lee McGuire) Darrell had this Legend car out at Second Creek Raceway in 1996.

R.I.P. Darrell....

Thanks for the photos of Darrell. He was a good friend. He snuck me into the back of his 57 Ford and did a few hot laps at Erie. Of course this was in the late 60's. I was thrilled! It was just before he married Carroll. Once I was sent to Vietnam, everything changed for me. It took a long time for me to find myself again. So I missed finding him, until it was too late. Thanks again for the photos. - Chuck

Darrell always treated me very well and I considered him a good frien, here is a link to his gallery.

Thanks for that link rapid! I've actually been looking for something like that for a school project!
