The #36 Norman Kidd drove (pictured in the black and white Vineland photo) later became Frankie Schneider's #2.  It was a real beauty. It was nice to see it again as the "Pop" Ippolito #36. After Frankie bought it, I got to sit in it in his yard (still #36) and imagine I was driving. I was 8 years old and I remember it like yesterday. After one of Frankie's rare flips at Reading in this car, he shelved it in favor of his new car (the famous "Old Bess"). Comment from Ned Stites III

Answer to 11/1/07 "70's Which Way"Trivia Question:  We asked, How Many Can You Name?
d011.11.07_MIS_TRI_FLM_0076_1.jpg (112557 bytes)
Answer:  (Photo taken May, 31, 1976) Al Michalchuk #292, Larry Voss or Lauden Potts in the Diamond #3, Bob Malzahn #99, possibly Rick Lewis in the white and red Pinto, Mike McNamara in the silver and black #8X spinning to the inside, possibly one of the Suztec brothers in the little red Gremlin getting into the #99, the brown car on the outside is the #2Jr and that is definitely Manny Zilli in the white #Z second from the last car...

Questions from 10/15/07:
Question #1:   "Can you name the driver of the #77 in this photo provided by Nick Piscitelli from East Windsor?":  
d10.27.07_077_MYS_EWS_0070_2.jpg (183592 bytes)
(Hint:  We're getting a lot of responses that the driver is Nick Piscitelli.   The photo was actually provided by Nick, but in this shot it is a different driver... In fact, the driver's name was written above the #77 on the side, but we erased it with Photoshop so it couldn't be read...  The driver had a very successful career on both dirt and asphalt and we're guessing that this was a car that he drove near the end of his career up here in the Northeast....)
d10.27.07_077_MYS_EWS_0070_1.jpg (184129 bytes)
Here's a shot showing Don's name on the door.  According to Don, he drove the #77 in 1979 or 1980...only a few times at EWS and once at Bridgeport. Don added, "The car was owned by Nick Piscitelli from Sayerville, NJ.  It was a nice enough car, but couldn't keep up with the big blocks."

Correct Answer:  Jules and Geza Sesztak...   and as far as spelling, well let's just say that we received about 15 different way to spell it, ...and we're still not even 100% sure of the spelling other than the last 3 letters are "tak".) 

Great to see how many of you remember guys like this who may not have won the big feature events, but as time goes on, we realize that they too played a big part in what was our greatest show on earth!

Answer to our 8/25/07 Trivia Question:  "Can you name 10 of these driver's from this 1962 photo from Nazareth?"
d08.26.07_NAZ_DRI_NAZ_0862F_1.jpg (98168 bytes)

Here is the note that accompanied the photo from Rob Renninger who provided the photo:

Here is a picture from my personal collection. I am sure your older fans will appreciate this old phone, and the younger fans can get a taste of what a modified feature lineup was like back in the early 1960's. Just about everyone in this picture had a shot at winning. This was the feature lineup for the night and included many all time modified greats and legends running for a whopping $400.00 to win.

Photographer's name..unknown, I purchased it at the Nazareth Speedway, there is no name on the back of the photo. Date, August 1962. Location Nazareth Speedway on the home stretch as the feature was lining up in front of the old covered grandstand.

Drivers from left to right front row..Buck Barker, Les Farley, Ed Farley, Bob Malzahn, Paul Bolagash, Oliver Butler, Bud Olsen, Billy Deskovick, Spud Murphy, Jackie Mclaughlin, Otto Harwi, Bobby Pickell, Tomy Scheetz, Leon Manchester, Kenny Wismer.

Front row left to right...Bill Creamer, Dick Havens, George Sleight, Carl VanHorn, Larry Voss, Sonny Strupp, Freddie Adam, Frankie Schneider, Roy Pauch   (Names in gray are those that weren't originally provided by Rob, but you guys have since suggested - 3Wide)

This was not a special race, it was just a typical field at Nazareth in the early 1960's. The guys were playing football on the home stretch just before the picture was taken using someone's shoe..... I was watching when the picture was taken. That is why the driver in the back row is holding the loafer.

Maple Shade, N.J.

We did receive a lot of other names from you guys and decided to move the photo to the "Faces of the Vault" Section so if you guys can add more.

Answer to our 8/18/07 "Bo Derek Trivia Question"
It's really rare to see a "ten"...  It's even more unlikely to see 2....  We'll here's 3 and if that's not enough, they're all sedans!  If you can name 2 or outta 3, or even all 3, we'll add your name below!
d08.19.07_010_TEN_REA_0072_1.jpg (124285 bytes)

Answer:  Well, we're told that its Bobby Braxton (left), Rich Eurich (right) and Bill Whitney, or Bill Rush in the white #10.  We are relying pretty heavily on the Reading faithful for this one as the only car those here in the Vault recognized is that of Braxton.  We just kinda thought it was a cool photo with there being 3 sedans, all #10, all in the same photo.  We'll move the photo to the 70's Section so that those of you with some inside info can add your comments.  Thanks to George Koyt for sharing this unique photo, and thanks to all who particpated in this week's trivia.

8/11/07 Trivia Question:  We asked:  "Can you name the driver in the photo below?  We're told that it is from Trenton Speedway and was taken sometime in the 70's."
d08.12.07_MYS_DRV_TRN_0070_1.jpg (134395 bytes)
Answer:  Pee Wee Griffin
While many of you are probably very, very surprised, we verified with the photographer that this is Pee Wee and was probably taken in October, 1976 at Trenton.  Most of the photos featured in the Vault are of Pee Wee from the mid to late 60's.  In fact, in doing research for this photo, I couldn't find a picture of Pee Wee beyond 1971 and that was black and white!

(If you look close below, you can see Pee Wee in the #72 in the same orange firesuit in the photo on the right also taken by George Koyt, on the same day as the photo of Pee Wee walking in 1976 at Trenton Speedway.

Answer to our 7/30/07 Trivia Question.... We asked:

d08.05.07_MYS_SPE_LOC_0079M_1.jpg (125686 bytes)
Above photo provided by George Koyt

Answer is:  East Windsor (Acella Speedway)

While many associated the Daniel Boone sign with Reading, a lot of you remembered that Lindy Vicari was involved at this time at East Windsor (1979).  Many of you provided additional info, and here's a sample from Vault Contributor Fred Voorhees:   "
The Daniel Boone 200 was traditionally held at the Reading Fairgrounds. When Reading closed down, Lindy Vacari moved it to the East Windsor Speedway. Billy Osmun won one of the Boone 200's down there."

Vault Contributor Bill Hanna also added:
"Interesting fact - the top five in that race were exactly the same top 5 in season points that year at "Acella Raceway":  I was going to that race that day, but as I was leaving Flemington, I saw many cars heading to Flemington instead as they were running Five (5) 20's against Windsor, and so we decided to turn back and go to the square. I remember Frank Cozze winning at least 2 of the features in the McCabe # 10, this was after the Verona & McCabe split. I also remember Gary Iulg having a great day at Flemington, with at least two (2) top fives including a runner-up in one of the features.

CORRECT ANSWER ACCORDING TO YOU GUYS:  Either Jerry Eschelman and/or Tom Mayberry.  (We'll move the picture to page 61 of the 70's Section and let you guys pick up the discussion from there.)
