The Back Story: 

Top Photo:

My Mom took the top picture of Kenny Coon at Syracuse in 1977, possibly 1976.  Ken dropped what he was doing and posed so the Old Lady could snap a picture of him during the hectic Super Dirt Week.

Second Photo:

Unsure about details, but it looks to be the same car.

Third Photo: Two of the best run nose to tail through 3 & 4, Kenny and Butch Jelley.


Fourth, Fifth, Sixth and Seventh: Kenny, Andy and I were the 3 primary people with the car along with many other dedicated people.
The 56 Chevy, Camaro, Coupe and 1st gremlin were built by Kenny and with help from all of us.
The next car was built by Walt Schwinning and we ran it 3 years changing the body to a Vega the 2nd year. The last car was built by Les Alberti.


Thanks Bull for the great shots of Kenny's cars.

One added note: As I remember it, when Walt Schwinning retired, Les Alberti bought out Walt and continued building with much of the same equipment to begin with.
