 Hey Vickie are you talking about Orval and Nina ( I hope I got that right). You must be I don't remember any other clown. They used to take my mom and I to the races back in the 60's when they were cub leaders. Thanks to your dad, I started working at Delaware in 1970. We used to go to your place a lot, when I was young.

And Michelle sure as heck can drive the wheels off her truck... Literally this young chick should be called "Rims" for driving on the rims

Hey Vickie your close! I'm Wayne. Kevin is Chiorguy. Tell your mom I said hi.
Hope everything is good with her.
  Your dad entertained a lot of race fans as hoppy and  as the ambulance driver provided a service none of us wanted but sure were glad to have around. Him along with Speedy George kept Delaware entertained and going for many years. ;)

Does anybody remember the stunt woman that used to get in the box with dynamite and blow it up? Remember Danny Ford jumping the buses on his motorbike and Gary Beck lighting up the front straight with his Export A dragster??

Supermart Gary Beck and his dragster was something to see doing a short run down the front stretch.If not mistaken that was after an Export A series race for late models with drivers like Earl Ross,Howie Schanell,Ed Howe and his second car think driver name (Mair)
both drivers were from Michigan just to name a few.That was a good race series back then.As for the second Howe car think his name was Mair if not maybe somebody could post his right name.

Heh...Ok we ARE on the same page time-wise. Re: racer44 - That business with Gary Beck was probably before the race...they laid down some stuff beforehand and literally lit the frontstraight on fire. That was the Victoria Day Spectacular, so the dragster would have been before the race, and fireworks after. I seem to recall it not being completely dark yet when they lit up the dragster...so it was probably before the race. If it was the Export A series than it was probably in 74 or 75.

The stunt woman with the dynamite escapes me...I have no recollection of that.

Danny Ford. The time we saw him, he'd come back from some kind of mishap and had been out of commission for a while. I remember a program photo of him jumping 2 buses end to end, but when we saw him, he jumped over 10 or 15 race cars. (Dennis the Menace Robertson's blue number 5 was last in line) Only other thing I recall is it was an afternoon race really late in the season, maybe some kind of Oktoberfest kind of thing, because they had to keep the ramps covered until jump time to keep the snow off them. He made the jump, but I never remembered hearing of him after that.

Here's another one: Demolition Football. 5 or 6 cars on one side. 5 or 6 on the other side. And 1 unmanned volkswagen punch-buggy in the middle.

Good times.  ;D

I think the other Howe car was Tom Meier or Meyer?? Dynamite lady was around 69 or 70 year. I barely remembered when my parents brought it up recently.

My favourtire number has always been #9, although my favourite driver was #36 Glen Schurr a Super Modified driver from the CNE days in Toronto. My favourite Late Model driver in those days was #9 Vic Parsons.  I was a huge hockey fan with Andy Bathagte being my favourite hockey player, so much so that the New York Rangers have been my team for ever.  Anyway I got the #9 for Flamboro and also for Delaware so it works where we don't have to add a number on the car for either track.


Hey Gary, nice to see you are a contributing member here now. It's really cool to have really experienced drivers and racing people talking about their experiences and knowledge.

I'm a big fan of yourself and the CVM... I followed that series for a few years before I actually got involved with racing, buying my own Thunder Car, and helping a few other guys here at Barrie with their cars. I was wondering about the #9 when we came to Delaware last week... and now you have explained it  ;D It was a little odd to see you in anything but the #36  ;D

Anyhow sorry about your luck last Friday and hoping to see you sometime soon. It's a little harder to see you in the LM (invi's only and the odd trip to Delaware or Flammy) but you're still plugging away and doing great. Congrats on the 41 years, that's a true milestone to be proud of.

Tom Maier was GoIng
Maier later won one of the big Cayuga races in the red Owosso Furniture #40 after he left Howe.

Ed Howe was GOne


Well except in 1974 when they both took turns in the Brand X Javelin


I saw Gary Beck do that burnout routine at the Mosport Export 'A' Trophy Series race in 1974. His Top Fuel car was sponsored by Export 'A' at the time.
