Original car, before Ed raced it as 34
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.
1972 – Martinsville Dogwood 500 start – L-R: Fred DeSarro, Jimmy Hensley, Richie Evans, Gene Bergin, Lou Lazzaro, Ed, Jerry Cook. Ed led this race for 60 laps but retired with a blown engine while in the lead on L136.
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.
1972 – Martinsville Dogwood 500, in order: Ed, Ron Bouchard (35), Bob Santos (09), Satch Worley (45), Richie Evans (61), Gene Bergin (1), Bugsy Stevens (15).
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.
This is the second 2x Pinto, not long after it was finished by Bob Judkins in the early summer of 1972.
1972 – I believe this crash happened in the (second) 2x Pinto’s first race.
