    This orange and white 44 car was a screamer back in 1975 and 1976

    Top picture The first car to ever win a $1000 feature at Brownstown Speedway in a 100 lapper.

    I remember that race. It was the fair with a huge carnival going. Robert Earl ran the best race I ever saw him run. The Chevelle screamed around the track on rails for 100 laps in great tune. Beating Paul Crockett's Chevelle by a half a lap. Crockett's Chevelle won 12 features at Brownstown in 1976 but got a surprise that night.

    The cars ran 13" tires back then, BTW

    1976 was my first full season of going to dirt races.

    I bought some bell bottoms at JC Penny's one time. After I washed them they shrunk about 4 inches. I didn't wear them, needless to say. hahahaaha (for cirf)

    One pair of my grandparents lived in Erie and had a tire recapping business. I spent a lot of summer weekends at their cottage outside town and in the shop with Gramps watching him break down tires with a sledgehammer and 2 tire irons. I remember where that high school was but never knew there was a race track there.

    This was mid to late 1940s and I was only a few years old and hadn't discovered racing yet so Gramps never took me but he did put me on a stool at Sullivan's Bar, his favorite watering hole next to his shop on French Street. I'd sip a Dr. Pepper while he'd knock down a few fishbowls of the tap beer with a couple of shots of Calvert's. The booze killed him when I was only 8. Made me sad. He did introduce me to wrestling though and got to see Gorgeous George, probably the original super star, at Gannon Auditorium. A lifetime ago.
