The Back Story:
Top Photo: Mystery Drivers #6 and #7
Bobby Bruekner, famous for driving/owning the #97’s that frequented Accord and Middletown for decades, was the original driver of this ride, as well as a partner in the 33.
That partnership dissolved soon after... making Don Partete sole owner. The car was then kept at Poppa Rich Ricci’s shop in Rosendale . N,Y.
Barry Tripp; usually found behind the wheel of the violet coach #34’s, had the ride for a while, but was fired from the #33, and after Montanye quit driving for the potent Sharkey #44, Harold took the ride in this #33 car. The unison between Montanye and Partete was a short lived one. Harold scored 6 Big Block feature wins at LV in his tenure, pretty signifigant, looking back at the competition that existed back in the day.
