Graham Taylor

Post by underdawg » Mon Aug 15, 2011 1:13 am

Anyone remember Graham Taylor that raced Late Models back in the 80's? I was at Beaver Springs Dragway friday night and he flipped a Vega bigtime. Pretty sure is was the same guy. Looked pretty nasty, hope he was OK.

This is the last photo Graham Daddy's Vega where the roof and body is smooth. Graham rolled the car but was unhurt. He'll be back Friday in a new ride. We understand it's another blue Chevy.

I remember him from late 80's, early 90's, he was dabbling in ARCA. He had a lot of old Bill Elliott stuff. I think Len Krautheim bought all Graham Taylor's ARCA equipment??? Was wondering where Graham got to??

Friend of mine talked to Graham last nite at the drags, I was there with him. He is racing a blue nova which he bought race ready and still has his last Arca car it is still wrecked the way it came home from his last Arca race. My buddy was talking to Graham about purchasing some of his Vega parts for a drag car he is building.
He who hesitates gets passed!!

I wonder who would be looking for Vega parts...
