Question Posted June 26, 2005:
"All Time Favorite" East Windsor Trivia: For those of you who were fortunate enough to attend the races at East Windsor Speedway throughout the 70's, you're sure to recognize the little #41C shown below. While I don't ever remember him winning a feature, the driver of this car showed us all something about this sport that as we grow older, we can appreciate with each day....
Correct Answer: Vince Cannazaro. Vince, known as "The Flying Baker", lost his life as a result of experiencing a heart attack while racing at East Windsor Speeway in the late 70's - But he was doing what he loved to do...
I remember Vince being there week after week... And we'd all watch the little brown and white #41c Coupe, that never seemed to change... year after year...., hoping that Vince would qualify for the Sportsman Feature on that particular evening... But knowing that even if he didn't, he was out there... And being out there is more than many can claim...
Vince showed us all that you only get one time around.... and if you're not doing what you want then what else is there? Vince was well into his late 60's when he left us - doing what he wanted to be doing.

photo by: Hank Winecker
Answer: That's Jim "ICE CREAM HERE - PEANUTS....." Williams. Jim always brought a smile along with the ice cream, peanuts, racing papers and whatever else he had for sale walking from section to section of the grandstands. Many of you reminded us here in the Vault how if the red was out, those in the Covered Grandstands could still here Jim all the way over between turn 1 & 2!
Jim's son Johnny Williams took up the trade along side his father and would also sell cold drinks and licorice at the square too. Today, Johnny Williams can be found on most Saturday Nights at New Egypt Speedway selling..... (you guessed it.....) Ice Cream!
Jim "ICE CREAM HERE - PEANUTS....." is another part of what Flemington was to all of us.

Answer: Pete Brittain!

Funny story on how he duplicated the numbers. We used one of my dad's slides of Pee Wee's car. To get the right size, we put the poster paper on our neighbor's house and shot the projector out my mom and dad's window. There we were in the dark "drawing" on the neighbors house!

Question Posted April 10th, 2005
"Asphalt" Trivia Question: We Asked: "Can you name the driver of this car from this 1974 Wall Stadium photo?"
Answer: Rick Sendzik
Additional Info Provided by Barry from B&B Machine Shop Inc., If you say the name Rick Sendzik to a Wall Stadium fan, most of them will associate him with the Chet Konopacki #6 Orange Gremlin Modified.
This picture was taken by my late father, Stan Hulse with his trusty SX-70 Polaroid at Wall in either 1974 or 1975 at an open practice. The #66 Falcon is the former Terry Cain car that Rick Sendzik and Paul Thiele bought from Terry in I believe towards the end of 1972.
The two shared driver duties the first year, then Rick bought out Paul. Rick then raced this Falcon with the 289 Ford until the year this picture

Question Posted Feb 20th, 2005 :
We asked: Can you name this open wheel ace who later drove a very familiar yellow coupe in the Sportsman Division at Flemington in the early 70's?
Photo By Ace Lane Sr.
Answer: Jimmy Maguire - Many of our "seasoned" visitors will remember Jimmy Maguire for his open wheel accomplishments of the 60's. A terrible accident caused the loss of Jim's arm, but his determination brought him back to the sport, and back to his winning ways.
Some may also remember Jim behind the wheel of a former Ken Brenn Sr owned yellow coupe (previously #24), that Jimmy bought, renumbered it #37, and drove in the Sportsman division at Flemington around 1975
A great driver, and a real ambassador for our sport, and if you ever get a chance to say hello to Jim, ask him how he got the nickname of "Magoo!" #

Answer : Bob Barone - Bob learned about racing from his dad and his Uncle Ralph who were busy working on such cars as the Piscopo #39 and the Carberry #47.

He also fabricated bodies for others and also competed at Syracuse in the mid 80's.
