79

This nice-looking car was owned and run by Greg Mills and Dave Welch. More than in most cars Ed drove during this period (mainly 1969), in the 79 Ed always seemed to have to struggle to be truly competitive. Nonetheless in the 79 Ed won against strong opposition at Stafford Springs and Norwood, and was leading in the latter stages of the Thompson 500 when a broken valve ended his race.

79

Ed’s Mills and Welch #79 is just behind Jerry Cook’s #38. This photo was taken at Malta, where Ed often drove the #79 in 1969, but only rarely in 1970, when he usually drove the Evans #61 at Malta.
