Merged the Historical thread with the "sweet old photos from 1968 thread". Thought they ought to be together.

Corrected the 17 driver as Geoff Rennison of Lambeth. If a Manning and a Truax and a 71 race program say its so, then it works for me.

Hi my name is Jim Taggart, and i raced in the cascar divison on friday nights at Delaware in the 80's, I drove the #9 Monte Carlo. I raced with Steve Roblee, Bobby Morris,Moe Merner, Phil McNally, Bill Rowse jr, Ken Charron and many others of that era. My dad and i towed every friday night from Windsor to Delaware, I enjoyed the competitiveness of the racing at Delaware and how well the other racers treated us every night. I've attached a couple pics of my car over some of the years i ran at Delaware, does anyone remember the #9 Monte carlo?

Ah OK. I just seem to recall Garner running a blue monte with the same number, That was some great racing back then.

Anyway, welcome to the boards!

Sure I remember Al Chute. I raced against him every Friday night back then. I think Al was running a red thunderbird #24 back then.

Actually, Chuter here sent me some photos of his Dad for posting. I've been a busy beaver lately and havent had a chance to treat them for posting, but keep an eye open.

Ok here's the game: What year and who is in each pic? Most of em are/were pretty big names at Delaware, so shouldn't be too tough to guess in most cases.

These pics were generously donated and I post them here on behalf of Sharpie91. These are some old photo scans that had to be blown up a bit, and are thus a little hazy....but definitely some fun to be had here for old timers!

Still no guesses


Ron "Peaches" Pearn in the Orange Crate


Ron Ling


Ron Lindsay


Chris Rijnen. (I thought it was Henry, but all things considered, Ill take Chap's word for it) I remember "The Blue Bugger" emblazoned across the rear deck of this car.


Randy Thompson


Ike Henry


George Wall


Hint: these next 2 are the same guy.




Doug Stewart


Dave Alexander


Cecil Doxtator (I loved this car)


Carl Porter


Bob Morris


Bob Merrifield


Art Neumeister


Steve Robblee
