Default Re: Mini Stock Racing - 1970's & Beyond

(J.L. McGuire collection) According to a 1972 Englewood Speedway program, this was
the very first appearance of a Mini Stock at the track. The car came out for a few exhibition
laps during intermission one Saturday to promote the new division which would start running
on Wednesday nights at Englewood that season. Larry Arduser drove this Datsun that year,
and Don Hagen wheeled it in later years.

(J.L. McGuire collection) Ken Rice spins his little Cortina around the Lakeside oval in 1975.

(J.L. McGuire collection) George Hite #9 battles a couple of VWs at Lakeside in 1975.

(Photo by Bruce Thompson) Anyone know who drove this Villa Mazda #21 Mini Stock??
Bruce Thompson snapped this pic in 1974, but the car doesn't appear in the MS listings for that
year. Must have been one of the fast ones though, as the car is seen in the trophy dash line up
in the first photo of this thread.
