bf-sort of thinking the 79 might be Dundas' Rich Grady in the Serv-a-station camaro owned by Pete Shepherd the 1st.

You are correct MIKE 32!!! The more I thought about it, I remember that Isen raced #42 at the time!!! Was a white, green, and gold paint scheme if I remember!! And as soon as you mentioned the name Grady I remembered it and he most def would probably be the 79.

I think Isen was sponsored by Purolator back in the day. Just wondering, re the car of Shaughessy's (sp?) shown, was that a Corvair body???  The front fenders sort of have a 68 Chevelle look to them, but that car looks really short!

So you won't mind if I agree with Dave and say that was 1973 that Kerrry raced that big ole Chevy in the 6-cylinders? Smiley

I go by what car we were running at the time and I have all my pics filed by year from the history I used to do on my brother's website. Helps to have run a different bodystyle nearly every year. It also explains why I get lost from about 1985 up to the early 90s since we weren't racing and I wasn't around the tracks.

I always thought that the car was a 1963-64 Chev Impala but looking at that big trunk space and the rear window opening I think it may have been a Chev Biscayne.





 In the colour pic you can see titleist Doug Duncan's Flying Bedstead 57 Chevy that was dubbed the Ruptured Duck by announcer Doug McLellan.

 I'm not 100% sure this is 73 I could be wrong, thou in 73 Sunset and Barrie had combined points, I know cause my dad led the points for the better part of the year, until gettin dq for a questionable part, thus giving the points to Duncan, which for some reason in my mind I thought he drove a chevy II or a nova. I could be wrong?? I dont remember Kerry driving that yr as he was helping my dad.

Regardin Dave Isen

Londoner here, one that grew up a couple blocks from the Isen shop. In the pic Sleepy posted, the car was indeed white with blue numbering. And he is also right about Purolator. The White, Green, Gold scheme came a couple years later, and the sponsor was Southwestern Welder Supply, whose colors the Isen car sported for a number of years.

I only have the photo of the Southwestern car with the 80s style Camaro, though he sported the same colors with an older style body as well. (I do have one pic of it, but its so fuzzy it isn't worth posting)

Neither of the following photos are mine.

Does anyone have a picture of the 007 car driven by Brian Sartorelli at Sunset in the late 70's. That was a big money car I remember !

Gord Graves has always been a huge Ford guy, a fanatic... He always made fun of us Dodge guys Grin I have seen pics of his previous Mustang, it would have been a '65 or 66. Thanks for posting the '71 - '72 Mustang pics, have never seen that car.

I'm new here and not sure how to post a comment, so putting it here.

I see that Barrie Speedway cars have to display decals on fenders , "wonder how many times they'll have to change them" ? LOL

If someone would like to explain how I post a new topic , feel free to do so.

The day after that Sunset feature win in 1977, Biederman won the Maple Leaf 250 at Cayuga I believe. He had an incredible season in the Nova.

You are correct. That year they divided the Maple Leaf into twin 125 lappers. Each race started 50 (not a typo) cars. Bieder won both halves...much to this kid's chagrin.

I hated the guy back then and wanted any car but that butt-ugly nova to win.  Cheesy

(We drove down to that race in my Mom's best friend's orange camaro...so we were rooting mostly for either Speedy Jack or Ron Pearn.)
