1968-03-31 – Martinsville Dogwood 300. The beginning of the video shows Ray Hendrick on pole and Ed on outside pole at the start of the race.

1968 – Malta. After it had been vacated by Ken Shoemaker, Richie briefly drove the Wright/Zautner #24. Apparently, Richie failed to impress the car owners, who soon fired him. They seem to have got that one wrong. Photo by John Grady.
