|Comments:||We salvaged this Mid 70's East Windsor action shot that had
a big crease down the center and was pretty marked up.... Even with it's problems,
its really a neat shot as it shows 2 cars beginning to set their cars to enter turn 1 at
the once great speedway.
Seems nobody can remember who drove the Flying "0".... (me included!) I don't think the car ran that often.... but that's definitely Howie Cronce in the #9c on the outside!

|03/31/05||Barry Hulse||Okay.... Here is your answer straight from the horses mouth....
This car was Dick Barney's last #14 coupe. Dick just told me he sold the car to Bill McCarthy who repainted and renumbered the car to the Flying 0. Bill McCarthy then sold the car to Bill Arre, Tim's dad. Charlie (Charlie Kremer) told me he ran this car for a year and a half at Windsor. He told me they were leading a feature by a ton and ran out of gas going down the backstretch because they forgot to fill it before the race.
Charlie coasted in for fifth place, Buzzie Reutiman won the race! Charlie told me that he knew this car at some point belonged to Dick Barney because it had an Olds motor in it, and Bill McCarthy always ran Pontiacs.
