    Maybe the saddest day of racing for me was at Winchester in 1981. Pat Schauer--what might have been.

    I wasn't there. I believe I was helping Steve Stubbs at Salem the same day. Pat was a good friend in addition to being a great driver, and I was totally shocked. His wife, Mary, is still a friend.

    ARCA---SALEM--1967

  6. #906
    Interesting shot - Lining up for qualifying at Northern Kentucky Speedway. ARCA race in 1966. The # 24 is Ron Fike, the # 63 car is Gene Crittenden, and the # 66 car is Bob Thomas. I loved ARCA back then - they'd race anywhere and put on a good show doing it. Enjoy

    Vegas, I loved those days, too. Enjoyed working so many different tracks for John Marcum. I remember one race at that track (Kentucky International) when it was so dusty we had to call it off. If memory serves, it was a three-quarter mile (six furlong) old horse track.

    The pics of the car are just hard to look at. This was when i first got into racing and following the ASA, just a kid of 9 and hearing someone died was weird at the time.

    Same car - happier time - at least, I think so. This is from a time prior to the big wreck that consumed this car. Taken at Dayton Speedway in 1966 or 1967. The number this day was 25 since Jack Bowsher usually ran # 21 in ARCA

    Hey, Big John worked this race too !

    Indyguy, I'm not sure if this is the same incident, but there was one time Cope when out of the ball park and I didn't go red. From the flagstand, I could see him driving around out there and knew he was OK. We'd have gone back to green earlier if he hadn't pulled up to the Turn 4 gate and had the gate attendant lean over and wave to me so he could get back in.

    I don't think this is the same incident, because if I recall correctly, the time I'm thinking about he went over without anything else happening. Also, it looks like there is some damage to the left front in the photo that would have kept him from driving the car back around if he went all the way over.

    Indyguy thanks for those pics. I have an Uncle who lives right down the street from the old ASA headquarters in Pendelton.
