Default 555 Triple Nickle Pikes Peak Speedway.........

Hey great stuff here! Anyone remember 555 from Colorado race tracks? Late 60s early 70s

Triple Nickel--Jerry Sikora was my dad, I was born and raised @ Pikes Peak Speedway.. A lot of great times as a kid! My Mom has a bunch of programs and pics I will get and post, but if you have any from the old speedway send them to me!

Thanks....

Az,
I remember him. Who could ever forget Beck calling out his name and number. I believe if I am not mistaken, Beck coined the words, "heres the 555, triple nickle, Jerry Sikora, "across the loudspeakers. I did not know him personally, only as a fellow racer. And yes, this is a great site. Lots of memories. I worked in the pits with Bill Walter and the green 83 55 chevy.

Great stuff azray. It is cool to see the pictures. I, for one, hope you have more from PPS. Any of Carl Foster or Larry Martin would be great. I am trying to build some more replicas and need some reference.
