Larry Witter.
Jeff,
Attached is probably the last photo of any of my dad's racecars. It was taken at
Midstate on August 4, 1965 after a win in the first heat and driver by Larry Witter. I
thought you might like to use it on the web site. It's a Don Phoenix photo and I
bought it at the track so I'm giving you permission to use it.
Also enclosing a picture of the same car the previous year at Five Mile Point with Lyn
Ingalls driving the car. It was all red with a white number on it. Lyn was the brother of
former URC driver Bryant Ingalls who later worked for UPS and was an Indy Car
mechanic. Lyn was killed in a very tragic highway accident over the winter of
1963-1964 and my dad bought the car and repainted it. Bryant drove this car in 1962
at Five Mile Point and was rookie of the year. It was the next to last time he ever drove
a stock car. Bryant drove the car once for my dad in June of 1964 at Five Mile Point
and flipped it trying to qualify. That was the last time we ran Five Mile Point.
Somewhere I have a nice color photo of the car before it ever went out on the track.
When I find it I'll send it to you.
In it's short history it had at least six different drivers sit in it's seat and Larry was by
far the most successful in it. I just thought you might enjoy this.
Mike
Lyn Ingalls.
