The photo of the red and white # 151 is a Chick Stockwell car from the Danbury Racearena. Raced as a Flathead just before the club went to overheads in 1972, Chick either blew the motor or wrecked his new overhead and won the feature with this car still running the flathead.

Chick's house was struck by lightning about 2 1/2 years ago and caused him to lose just about everything. I don't believe he had insurance either.

Thanks for that link, Buzz. Looks like the hobby of restoring old racers is alive and well.
