I may have posted this one before. Taken at Heidelberg and looking for the driver's name. Sorry for the poor quality it's a snapshot photo.

Let me see how close I am....#85 (#45) is Chuck Yost from northern Ohio.  Chuck raced a lot with URC out east.  This car had a Pontiac motor and the last time I saw it was about 1970 at Skyline Speedway and Don Adams was driving it.  I think it belonged to Steve Holly.

The 2nd pic....looks like Ted Wise in the Putt Putt Golf car #68.  It's a Alfater chassis car and raced in the Morgantown/Shinnston WV area some in the early 60's.

The action shot....#2 may be Buddy Martin, the #88 looks like JD Leas.  The #65 is Jim McGill and Ted Wise looks to be sitting backwards and the #14 looks like Jim Fizer.  The 1st car sitting sideways no idea.

The last photo is Kenny Weld in his roadster when he 1st came to the Pa. area.

Thanks jim, for identifying the drivers. Was Buddy Martin the same guy that drove midgets with the Tri-State group?

The #92 roadster is a Weld but it's Greg. Kenny went back there in 66 with this car.

Yep, same Bubbdy Martin.  Someone else also drove that car but can't remember who.

CG, you may remember that car running IMCA in your area too.  Mocca Offy?
