Photo taken after Ed had won the Stafford 200, September 5, 1977. Also in the photo are chief steward and former driver Ed Yerrington on the left and Manchester Sand & Gravel boss Bill Thornton second from right. Despite Ed’s great drive that day, here he is grimacing with pain. Ed had broken his back twice, at Stafford in 1974 and again at Star in 1975, and for the rest of his life he suffered from serious back pain. Photo by Mike Adaskaveg.
