Dennis... interesting to see the writer put a SSS price tag on Gene White's ex-Smokey ride with Pete. Were they really running mag wheels as the article states? I got to sse that Camaro blister the field later in the summer of 1969 at South Boston.

Dave, Early on they allowed cars to run the same mag. wheels that the Trans-Am cars ran. You will see pictures of early Daytona races where the field was mixed with T-A and GT cars that ran steel wheels. As 1969 went on all the cars ran steel wheels.

Great report Dennis and I love the photos. I am so happy you are doing this for the site. You are most welcomed to entitle these as "Racing History Minutes" so Google will pick them up that way. After all, it IS racing history and you're doing an awesome job. Thank you.

Amen to that thought, Tim. Really looking forward to more GT/Grand Am reports from Dennis. I saw 3 races - one in '68 at Richmond, one in '69 at South Boston and one in '70 at Raleigh - 2 dirt, 1 asphalt. Enjoyed them alll.
