Default Who drove that number.

Letís have Some fun and letís play a game. Also I am sure it will help a lot of us younger guys learn some history for the old school guys.

The game is we will start with 0 or 00 and count up to 100 but we canít move to the next number until we have filled the last. With a name and if you have it a picture of who drove that number on their race car.

Once a number has be used we can move on tot he next and if you have some one else for a number you can reply their name to the one as well.

Letís have some fun!!!!!

Er, aren't Heveron and Gorham between "0" and "1"...?

(told you my cipherin' is sketchy)

Ironhaid has to be #3, or global warming will increase, or something.

#19 Harry Pullen. Made Big Mean E look like a creampuff. He would cross an infield to ensure that what goes around comes around RIGHT NOW.

Had at least one brother that raced, Henry.

#20 Bobby Dawson

In the mid to late '60s Bobby ran a sharp '30s Chevy Sportman (with a six) that was later updated to a modified (with an 8) before the cutdown almost-sprint-car modifieds prevailed.

Bobby could run on the outside for 10 laps or more to get by a guy, smooth as silk, clean as the driven snow. Or so I recollect...

https://www.google.com/search?hl=en&...b-0welpJDpRLM:

Also long time racer Don Keithly is running #20 this year, actually roman numeral "XX" in honor of an old racer that he knows.

Don Keithly:

And a clean shaven Don in victory lane:

We skipped over #59: a number used by Florida's busiest, most successful, and I think most interesting driver. Becca Monopoli has been on a rampge for several years: Legends, trucks, modifieds and now SLM. I don't have her detailed stats, but as an interested observer of our sport, I can assure you that she wins a ton of main events. High profile, extra-distance races too, and don't forget her TWO championships at Showtime in 2018!

I often spoke with her mom and dad. Last I knew, her dad did the set-up and maintenance on the fleet of #59's. I bet the family is still heavily involved, but she has the opportunity to drive other equipment now that her talent has been proven.

Don't rely on my fuzzy memory. Instead get out and watch Becca in action!

This guy was the Henry Ford of stock car racing, IMHO.

Ed Howe from Beaverton, MI., and his business, Howe Racing, put late model racing on the fast track to factory designed and built racecars. His cars may not have been affordable like Henry Ford's were, but they did push the evolution from home-built late models based on street cars, to faster, safer and more readily available chassis.

Howe Racing will be celebrating its 50'th anniversary soon, although Ed himself is retired.

Ed was a pretty good driver too. He made frequent trips to Florida for the big events. Winning was the best way to sell cars, and Ed won a ton.

He also had an interest in "unusual" numbers for his cars. There was the "H" car (supposed to be a #4), and the ones shown below, 60 and 61. If you look close, you will see that they are actually "GOne and Go1ng". In ths shot, Ed was in the 60, and Michigan hall of famer Tom Maier drove 61.

Default #56 Jim Hurtubise

Becca is always a joy to watch. I was at Showtime and she got squeezed into the backstretch wall and it blew both front fenders off the truck. After acclimating to the new-and-not-so improved toe in, she went on to win the event by battling through the pack.

And Ed Howe, what can you say? Probably the man most responsible for the transition from '55 Chevys/'64 Chevelles into tube chassis Camaro bodied modern race cars.

Jim Hurtubise is another man worth mentioning. A Neil Bonnett/Buddy Baker/all out type of racer.

Here he is piloting one of Andy Granatelli's Novi V8 cars when most were running Offys:

https://www.google.com/search?hl=en&...yTCQlV37pR_hM:

While he never won the 500, I always felt he was capable if the breaks had gone his way. He was also the last guy to qualify for the Indy 500 (in '68) in a front engine roadster:

https://www.google.com/search?hl=en&...30a4fJHJjDQ6M:

Also notable in the "committment" department: In an accident he received serious burns to his hands in 1964. The doctors asked him how he would like his hands permanently shaped... "Just make 'em so I can hold a steering wheel" Jim replied.

Thankfully, the highway scene was filmed on a sunny day so no Fords were harmed.

Phil, before we get to that number we have to mention that Don Keithly changed his car number to "75" this year, presumably so that he could appear in this thread twice.
