Thanks Rick,

Now that spans a few decades & a whole lot of history. Wish we had some years on the pictures, would that be great...

RJ, He is still full of fun. Never a dull moment with Ody. The first picture loaded on this thread is a 1954 Ford that was stolen by Ody just to race at the fairgrounds, a race Ody declares as one of the first late model stock car races ever in Colorado. The stolen car episode forced Ody to leave town for California.

Yes! Thanks Rick for another fantastic thread, and thank you Ody for all the great memories and for sharing your photos with us. We remember Ody when he wheeled the Modifieds #74 & #12 in the late '60's at Englewood.

Love seeing all the different kinds of cars Ody drove over the years. That #73(Late Model??) looks all bent to hell and yet there's Ody receiving a trophy for winning in it! The one of Ody standing on his head by the 'Nasty Nash' is my favorite though. Check out John Tadolini standing in the background of that one. He's got that "What the....???" look on his face.

I hope you have more threads like this in the works Rick! Great stuff!

Long live Ody Fellows!!!!

My first memories of Ody was when he used to come out to our property on the Parker Road (now Leetsdale), and hang out with my Dad. I was maybe six, or seven. I ran into him at an Indycar race at PPIR several years ago, and the first thing he said was, "Man your dad could drink a lot of beer."



Thanks, Dave Russell

Outstanding thread Rick! Ody Fellows is a remarkable person, what a career and I remember seeing him drive just about every kind of race car there was.
Another owner/driver/pit crew member, from the Englewood Racing Association super mods, told me that Ody was known, in tight gossip circles, as "The Secret". Anyone else remember this?
