Default NEED INFO ON VINTAGE SPRINT CAR

Here are some pictures of a sprint car I purchased in DeMoines IA. I think it was last raced in the Denver area. If anyone knows what make or where the car was raced I would greatly appreciate it.


Thanks, Dan

Dan, welcome aboard!! you will enjoy this site, lots of great stuff. My memory is fuzzy, but it seems to me, "Protech Ind" was Joe McCarthey's business. He built sprint cars, maybe still does, I think he lives in Arvada. AAI Speed Equipment was the go to race car shop for most racers in Colorado for years. Ernie DeCroce was the owner of AAI, he was a great human being for sure. Joe McCarthey is married to DeCroce's daughter Gina. From the photos, I can't make out who the driver is, listed on the side of the car. I've been gone from Colorado for 13 years so I could be off on some of my info.
