My Sat. at the Jalopy Showdown-Sprints Roadsters Stockers !

Post by Buildy » Tue May 20, 2014 12:05 pm

Larry Garland decided to take the Jalopy Showdown in a new direction,featuring race cars instead of only Hot rods. I did not know about the change in format until I stumbled across my friends from Ohio with a pack of Sprinters ! Those guys know how to put on a show. :thumbright:

Image


I kid you not these guys throw the stuff around !

Image

Tenn. Hot shoe late model driver Kevin Gill took his first ride in a Sprint car and he let it all hang out.

Image
Mike Whitney in the #23 !
Image

This car used to be the #10 but was completely restored from the last time it was here 2 yrs ago.
Image

More later.
Mike Whitney driving the 44.
Image

The Sprint car boys brought their own push truck along !

Image

Dan Shaw let me try the #49 on for size. I did leave the driving to the professionals,though :thumbright:

Great photos Tony. You looked right at home in the seat, maybe a few warm up laps next time? :D From the angle of those photos, it looks like you got a little dirty. Keep up the good work, and thanks for sharing. :cheers2:

Tony that B&W of the Shaw Special is outstanding. Looks like you went back in time for that one!
