Default 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.

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
