The Osgood 9 that became the Russell 10, then the Graham Taylor 57 was built by Junie Bodine, uncle of Geoff, Brett, and Todd Bodine. They were the chassis to beat in southern NY supermodified racing in the early 60's. The New Yorkers referred to the cars as "June Bugs". The photo of the car when Joe Lingle ran it has the temporary "production car" roof. For one year the rules stated that all cars had to have "production car" roof's. As you can see the rule was pushed to the limit of how much of the original roof had to be used.
They say Geoff spent many Saturday nights at Port Royal with the Osgoods.
John Fabian from Everett was a crew member for the Cici-Welliver Hungry Jack Grand National team in the early to mid 90's with driver Todd Bodine. We were in Rockingham for the fall race in 93 and John invited my wife and I to stand on the transporter during practice. When we climbed the ladder, Geoff was there spotting for Todd. He didn't look like he wanted to talk so I never said anything to him the whole time. It was Geoff, my wife and I on the transporter, that's all. If I knew then that he was at Port in the 60's with the Osgood's, I would have asked him about it...
