On another note: I am trying to figure out where the herslow and murlock race car went. Have a feeling it ended up w Don Kennedy can anyone confirm that?
Can now confirm it did not end up there.

Would like to find out where it ended up though.

Sorry to hear this. I remember Don at the 73 or 74 Amarillo World Finals.

Also I must mention,
Junior Stock ace Ramon Lowe recently passed away.

Well I logged on to post about Truman Fields' 68 Firebird[s] but I read this and was just stunned. I never even met Oldskool but his stories and enthusiasm were so awesome. I wanted his opinion on Truman's cars but I guess it will have to wait. (Insert Sad Emoji)

See post #47 etc here, my favorite Oldskool stories:

8.00 RY 73-up

RA2 W/P=8.57 at FHP=385
RA1 W/P=9.17 at FHP=360 (GTO rating)

Fields won C/S=9.00 class at 73 Indy, and ran in C/S=9.00 at 74 Indy (famous mystery picture vs Dick Simon A/SA=8.00 Fairlane ragtop).

I had concluded that Fields Hard Times started out running RA2 but then ran as a RA1 W/P=9.17. This picture seems to confirm he made that change in 1972, probably because the RA2 at W/P=8.57 was too hot even for 1972's A/S=9.00 class. Then the car continued to win as a RA1 car. Was hoping Oldskool would chime in but I guess that will be later and elsewhere.
