What a beauty of Hutchinson racing history.
Dwane Wolf owner of County Line Restoration of Rose Hill, KS owns and restored this former #15 Henry Ellington driven sedan from the late 60's. Other drivers also drove this car. I believe others might have been Glenn and Gene.
This was built in 1966 by Kenny "KAM" McCoy of Hutchinson, KS. Kenny owned the car from the beginning.

Dave recently purchased this sprint car pictured above and his planning a full restoration. As a rookie at this I am having trouble identifying the chassis. I did contact the mechanic whose name is shown on the car and he told me that the car originally came from South California to Montana in the late 70's.
It was originally painted light blue. Has Halibrand quick change, brakes, hubs, etc and CAE in out box. Chassis appears to be early 70's, as the roll cage appears added on (factory installed). Any help identifying this chassis/car would be appreciated.

This is 1933 Chevy three window coupe that belongs to Mike Eastman. It was originally built as a modified in the late 50's & supposedly raced in Tennessee & Kentucky. It was also in a racing museum for some time in North Carolina. It has a Chevy 283 for power & old Ford tranny & running gear. Mike restored the car in 1998 & races it with vintage groups in the midwest. Nothing much more is known of it's history.
