I think this is the same car. Jennerstown Laurel Highlands 101. Forget what year but I talked to Bobby this day and he said this was the first night out for it. I think he finished in the top 5 this night.

Sprint Car Restoration - I owe so much to Marlin Heller, Lynn Paxton, and Jim Strausbaugh. I want to thank EMMR Museum for their amazing photo gallery. I am so glad I had the opportunity to see my Dad win so many races within such a short period of time in Central, PA. Words cannot describe how I'm going to feel when the car starts with my Dad sitting in the seat at Williamsgrove/Selinsgrove. The previous video attached is not complete or in order and will be edited when the car is fininshed. My brother and I want to restore the #35 Hawthorne Special from 1967-68. Thank you to everyone who has been involved and those who have been following my posts. I owe all of my mechanical abilities and knowledge to my father. He and I talk frequently about the car.


I have been watching this link closely and I am thrilled to see what you are doing.

Growing up in Selinsgrove I got to watch your dad on a regular basis. I remember as a kid I had a little dog that was fast as he11 when he ran around the yard as a puppy so I named him Bobby Adamson. My parents took me to the infield to meet your dad one night and I remember telling him about my dog. He thought that it was pretty funny. I also got a card signed by your dad a number of years ago at the Motorsports show, so to this day i am still a fan.

brett, can't wait to see this car when complete. as i told you before Bobbie was my favorite driver as an 11-12 year old fan in the early 70's. i still gotta call you and will make sure you have the contacts you need to be able to put it on the big half mile at SG.
