Jack Gunn's stolen pace car

Post by RT88 » Sun Jul 22, 2012 4:07 pm

This story was talked about last night at the Grove. It was either 1968 or 1969, I think it was '68.

It was at Selinsgrove Speedway. They were ready for a race and Gunn called for the pace car. The problem: someone stole the pace car. The person hopped in the pace car at the track and took off with the car. The pace car was found a week later. I don't think they ever caught the person.

Anyone remember this and if they do, can they add more to the story? Thanks - Steve Bubb

if anyone can narrow it down to the year for sure and maybe even part of the seaon i'll look thru the local newspaper microfilm archives to see what i can find.
My OPINIONS are just that and do not necessarily reflect the opinions of anyone or any track I am associated with!
