1971. This is the original car, before Ed raced it starting in spring 1972.
1971-10-17 – Langhorne. The 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, renumbered it as 34, and had Ed drive it. Image from Lynchmobracingimages.com.
1972-03-19 – 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 a few laps after this photo was taken.
1972-03-19 – 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). An internet poster asserted 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 the 1972 Dogwood race had taken place. This image in fact appears to be from the October 1973 Cardinal 500 at Martinsville.
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.
