1968-03-31 Martinsville Dogwood 300

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. The narrator is incorrect when he says that “Hendrick jumped into the lead”. In fact, as can be seen on the video, Ed jumped into the lead, which he held until the 51st lap, when his engine blew.

Richie Evans

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.
