2x Pinto

1971 – 10-17 – Langhorne – Original 2x Pinto at one of last races in which it was driven by Gene Bergin. Early in the 1972 season, Frank Vigliarolo bought it, repainted it as 34 and had Ed drive it. Image from Lynchmobracingimages.com.

2x Pinto

Martinsville Dogwood 500 lap 120 of 250. The leader indicated on the scoreboard was car #42. That was a temporary “Martinsville” number given to the original 2x Pinto which Ed was driving. In this race he led for 60 laps, and was still leading until his engine blew on L129, shortly after this photo was taken.

2x Pinto

1972 – Martinsville – Max Berrier (12), Paul Radford (26), Ed in 2(x). A poster wrote that this photo was from the March 1972 Dogwood 500. However, the car in this image is the second 2x Pinto, which did not exist until a few months after that race had taken place. This image is probably from the 1972 Cardinal 500, which took place after the second 2x Pinto pictured here had been built. In the ’72 Cardinal 500, Ed finished 3rd.
