I'm sure that many would say that this would be an improvement over fireworks as a supplement to the normal racing shows!

Tom Peck vs. Jim McBee....I think Tom doused Jim with a dry chem in the Grove pit.

Jim Spencer vs. the Landis Brothers at Port....Had to stop the race when the one Landis slowed and waited for Spencer to appear...Bang Fest on the track. Jim had previously roughed up the other Landis on a track incident.

Jim Spencer crashed Johnny Grum....near riot in Port infield. Fans throwing stuff at Spencer pit.

Ed Spencer and clan take out wrecker in L.A. Watts riot fashion at Selinsgrove. Can't we all just get along...

Hamilton crew w/Rahmer vs. the Jay Richert idiots at the Port. U should never bring a torsion bar to a fight unless u can keep it in your hand. To bad for the old man from the 15 car as he left via Ambo.

Bobby Brooks goons at Lincoln for a URC race against Jay Myers driving the John Schneider 98. Do not carry chain binders to a fight if you don't expect to get pounded to a pulp! Wasn't pretty for the 17 bunch...Too Bad

The Spencer riot was the night of Jimmy's first race.

Back in the 1950s the Spencer clan had one of the all timers. They were angry at a driver, I believe it was at the old Rummage's Grove track. The clan picked up the driver, carried him over to the front chute, and threw him on the track as the feature field came roaring out of turn four.

Plus there was the final race at Beach Haven. Ed won the race only to be told there wasn't any money to pay him. Ed returned with a baseball bat and somehow they found the money.

The AJ Foyt deal at the Grove was a classic. My dad was there and told me about it. Foyt was steaming after his heat race. He went looking for Bill White. There are several versions of what did take place. Foyt said he never threw a punch but he did have White in a headlock. White said he could actually hear his helmet cracking while Foyt had him. Foyt's defense at his hearing was he couldn't have punched him because White's head was still on his shoulder.

I remember a big one at the former Dorney Park Speedway. Mario Andretti and family were there that day to watch John Andretti race his Modified. There was a big dust up in the pits. It was odd to be standing there at the fight, look over, and there is Mario.

I also remember a night in the 1970s at the Chemung Speedrome in New York. During the race a driver stopped his car, climbed over the fourth turn tire fencing and went after some fans. Driver claimed the fans were throwing rocks at him during the race. Steve Bubb

The driver was Rod Gaumer and he got into an on track incident with Cy Spencer.

High in the First Turn - do remember if Cy Spencer was the one they chased all around the track at Bone Stadium? To read the accounts all I can imagine was the Three Stooges. One of the Spencers crashed and they wanted him to get in the ambulance. He refused and started running around the track. Security and the ambulance crew chased him around the track and through the infield.

Does anyone remember the night Keith Kauffman dropped the drunk fan at the Grove? I was right behind Keith when he did it. It was a one-punch, hello dirt punch. Someone walked up and thanked Keith and he said "it wasn't nothing."
