Modified driver John McClelland takes a break to say hello to some of the guests from night sponsor "Joy Auto Parts".
Here's the crew from Joy Auto Parts (Greenbrook, NJ). That's SS Sprint racer Garrent Luzi next to John in the bottom row (center).
And for the dirt track Flemington fans, I'm sure you'll remember "Joe Luzi" (bottom row, 2nd from left) who drove the "Toy" car in the early 80's.
Here's Joe at speed in the Joy Auto Parts Special in turn 3 at Flemington from 1981.
