First Event March 23rd @ Remington Park (see schedule)

He's Back ! 1990 Speedy Lewis Rallye
Free hot dogs, chips, beer and cokes greeted the rally teams at Dufner Park. Quite a few ron-ralllyists attended the picnic and joined in the revelry and retelling of countless happenings of the day. After the last beer had been downed, and the last car pulled out of the park, I realized that over eighty people had participated, worked or just hung-out. That fact alone makes the return of the Speedy Lewis special. The level of competition, the conditions of the course and the fellowship at the picnic make it memorable. (read more)
Boy Are These Guys Losers
As a sidelight to the 1990 Speedy Lewis Memorial Rally, a “Team Challenge” event was held combining the rally on Saturday and the Solo II on Sunday. The intent was to encourage cross-over participation and show that fun can be found in each venue of the SCCA scene.The losers were the “Banzzai” group of Wendell Karr-Ake, Jim Duea, David Bower and Jim Bower.(Shown above). Winning by a margin of 67 to 62 points was the “Fearsome Foursome” of Ron Poloski, Mike Woodruff, Bill Trimble and Jim Long.(read more)
In Search of the Three "Bs": 1969 Daytona 24 Hours
Our attention turned to the Volvo 122S entry of Art Mollin from New York. This under 2 litre, Group 5 car, was almost identical to the one I drove to the races, except it was a two-door with a full NASCAR roll cage. I volunteered any help I could to Art’s one man crew, and we watched the race from their pit. (read more)
