In regards to the Rutherford crash at Eldora:

Funny how things work out. May 3rd 1964 my dad (Chuck Hulse) had a terrible sprint car crash at New Bremen that kept him out of racing for 2 years, and he lost his ride with Dean Van Lines and was replaced by Mario Andretti, who actually started my dads accident. When Rutherford crashed at Eldora, his chief mechanic, A J Watson didn't have to look too far for a replacement for the seaon. He needed an experienced driver who could handle both pavement an dirt. My dad had driven his sprint car a few times in 1961and half of the 1963 season. Fortunatly my dad had just passed his physical, and went on to have a pretty good year finishing 7th in points.
