Ron Fowler from Chanute in the Schippert #4. Ron Set the fast time at the Hutch Nationals in 1972. The quick time was the record of 24.38 for the flat 1/2 mile fairgrounds and stood for as long as the supers timed in for positions (I wish they would have timed in for some of the state fair dates. There was some pretty cool days and the track had some pretty damp conditions). This was and still is one of my favorite supers and drivers along with Grady Wade and Roger Thompson as pilots.
