The Back Story:

Top Photo: Mert in a Bruce Carman owned coupe with a Devil's Bowl Speedway sticker on the door.

Second Photo: Mert with his immaculate #1.  Take a look at the nose piece, they had the aerodynamics figured out back then, this crude piece of workmanship, while effective Iím sure, is very similar to the big front nose pieces that Olsen started putting on their early 90 wide bodied cars.

Third Photo: Mert Hulbert pictured in the always immaculate Kennedy 8ís

Fourth Photo: Mert Hulbert in the hard to reach Lebanon Valley victory lane with the always immaculate Kennedyís towing #8.  Take a look at his crew chief Jocko Marterer who could still use that photo for his present day drivers license.

Fifth Photo: An interesting shot of Mert Hulbert coming out of turn four from Joel, who didnít get out to LV too often, being a northern Jersey boy, but took this fantastic shot of Socks in what he thinks was the last Kennedy coupe,and possibly the last St. Germain Kennedy 8.

Sixth Photo: Mert at speed on the Moody Mile.

Seventh Photo: Mert ďSocksĒ Hulbert putting the Kennedy 8 through itís paces at the legendary Syracuse Mile.

Eighth Photo: Another shot of the Kennedy 8.

Ninth Photo: Ho Hum, just another gorgeous Kennedyís Garage #8, wrenched by the still active Jocko Marterer.

Tenth Photo:  Mert always had great rides, and the 2h team was no exception.

Eleventh Photo:  Bruce Carmenís 23 drew quite a crowd on this early spring day at LV, hard to make out behind the #23 is among others, Goober, Carmen, Uncle Art, & Dirk VanOrt
