I am trying to find some information about a 35 year drag racing reunion not the 50th reunion. I have copies of  two pages out of something, I was wondering if you know what they are from. Page 12 shows and talks about Ericson and Willard, Action Joe and Kansas badman Ted Detar, page 13 has an article about Drag World Bash, Chuck Grimsley and Ericson wreck at Wichita Drag Strip. At the top of both pages it says 35 year reunion. I think it was 1998, I would like to get in touch with the one that did the program or get a copy.


Thank you

In celebration of this auction event, The King will make a special appearance with one of his historic cars—his 1992 Pontiac Grand Prix with his hallmark No. 43 that Petty drove during his 1992 Fan Appreciation Tour before he retired from racing at the end of the year—and other highlighted items, at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino in Las Vegas on March 2nd at 2:30pm PST.

The beloved and honored Richard Petty, whose acclaimed 35 year racing career saw a record number 200 career race wins, over 700 top 10s in 1,184 starts, seven Daytona 500 wins and seven NASCAR Championships, continues to be celebrated by millions of fans and peers around the world who crowned him as "The King" of NASCAR and the sport’s most revered figure.

Born July 2, 1937 in Level Cross, North Carolina, Richard Lee Petty is a second-generation driver whose late father, Lee Petty, a three-time NASCAR Champion, was the patriarch of the Petty family-racing dynasty. At the age of 21, Richard Petty embarked on his NASCAR career and was named NASCAR Rookie of the Year in 1959. In 1960, he produced his first career win at the Charlotte Fairgrounds Speedway and throughout the decade broke out as NASCAR’s greatest star, capturing the Daytona 500 twice as the first driver to accomplish this feat. In 1967, Petty collected 27 victories, including 10 in a row, both still NASCAR records. On the Fourth of July in 1984, Petty triumphed in one of the most memorable races in history at the Firecracker 400 at Daytona International Speedway, beating Cale Yarborough in a breathtaking final lap. Petty’s historic 200th race win, which he rode to victory in his trademark No. 43 STP Pontiac, was attended by President Ronald Reagan, the first President to attend a NASCAR race. Petty retired after the 1992 season finishing an illustrious racing career that resulted in records and honors unmatched by any other driver in history including being named NASCAR’s Most Popular Driver eight times; inductions in the Motorsports Hall of Fame of America, the International Motorsports Hall of Fame, the inaugural NASCAR Hall of Fame, the North Carolina Auto Racing Hall of Fame and the North Carolina Athletic Hall of Fame; and receiving the Presidential Medal of Freedom, the first ever to be given to a motorsports athlete, bestowed by President George Bush in 1992. Petty’s legacy continues to make an impact on and off the track with his work overseeing his race team Richard Petty Motorsports, Petty’s Garage high performance speed shop and the Petty Museum, as well as his donation of land to build Victory Junction, a summer camp for children with various medical conditions. He also is the co-founder of the Petty Family Foundation.

The only African-American driver to win a Cup race-Wendell Scott's 1972 uniform and helmet.
There's a NASCAR OF FAME photo of Wendell Scott display case that has his race uniform with words "Cammack-Alston Racing Assoc. Inc. or "Commack-Alston Racing Assoc. Inc." on it.
Does anyone heard of "Cammack-Alston Racing Assoc. Inc. or "Commack-Alston Racing Assoc. Inc." ?


Wendell Scott raced for car owner Len Cammack in the in IMSA GT competition during 1975 season?

Don't know the Alston connection in the Cammack-Alston Racing Assoc. Inc.

Trans Am Mustang 3-1971 150w, 450w" sizes="(max-width: 970px) 100vw, 970px" data-was-processed="true">

The second Boss 302 Trans Am from the Jim Click Collection is a 1970 model, though it’s identified as chassis 3-1971. One of four body-in-white cars shipped to the Bud Moore team by Kar Kraft for 1971, 3-1971 was prepared as a backup car for drivers George Follmer, Peter Gregg and Parnelli Jones, but never saw action during the season. Ford’s withdrawal of corporate sponsorship for 1971 left the team scrambling for funding, and at the end of the 1971 season, sister cars 1-1971 and 2-1971 were sold off. The car offered here, 3-1971, was sold to Morris Davis at the start of the 1972 season, fitted with a 351 V-8 instead of the 302 V-8 used in the Trans Am series.

It’s not clear if the car was raced by Davis in 1972, but in 1973 he hired Dan Daughtry to drive the Mustang in the Paul Revere 250, an IMSA race at Daytona International Speedway. Though scored in 36th place, Daughtry did not finish the event, retiring after 28 laps. Later in 1973, Davis sold 3-1971 to Len Cammack, a New Jersey resident who enlisted the help of Wendell Scott in driving the car.

Best known for breaking the color barrier in NASCAR, and later, for becoming the first African-American driver to win a Grand National Series race, Scott also ran in IMSA GT competition. As Cammack’s driver, Scott campaigned the 1975 season as the team’s budget allowed, finishing as high as 15th place at Road Atlanta in the season-opening IMSA GTO race and duplicating the result at Talladega in August. In between, Scott delivered a 20th-place finish, an 18th-place finish and a DNF, but the performance was more a reflection of the team’s limited finances (and by then, outdated race car) than of the 54-year-old Scott’s talent. At the end of the year, 3-1971 was parked at Scott’s shop in Danville, Virginia, where it would remain for nearly a decade.

In 1984, 3-1971 was purchased by Mike Durham, who recognized the car as one of the body-in-white Mustangs delivered to Bud Moore for the 1971 season. A restoration was started, but prior to its completion the car was sold to Mark Hereford in 1988. By 1991, the restoration to a 1971 Bud Moore team livery was complete, and 3-1971 achieved a perfect score in three SCCA concours events. Raced occasionally in vintage events, the Mustang passed through two more owners before being acquired by Jim Click a few years ago, and 3-1971 returned to the track for the 2015 Monterey Historics, where it finished first in the Trans Am class.
