Default Bob Herring modified Englewood Speedway 1970s

Does anyone have a picture of the modified sprint car that Bob Herring ran at Englewood Speedway in the early 1970s?

I've got Englewood Speedway programs all throughout the 70's, and dozens of promotional flyers they used to send out, no mention of Bob Herring at all. He must have run on and off, but not as a registered car owner or driver with the Englewood Racing Association, ?
I have a 1974 Big Car Racing Association (BCRA) sprint car program, for a show at Colorado National Speedway, he timed in at 22:10 in a #17 car. Also in a couple of 1978 sprint car programs for a weekly show at Colorado National, in a #76, no photos however.

The car I was looking for was a sprint car that was owned by Harry Conklin and was driven by Jim Malloy before Bob Herring bought it. I believe Herring sold it to a guy who ran it in E.R.A. at Englewoood in the mid 1970s - does that ring any bells?
