Darrel Jennings could fly. One night here Tulsa in June 1975 he had come up to race here because the Dewey Modified NCRA race was the next day. He surprised himself by winning the feature here, in the interview he made the comment that he did not think he would be competitive here and was surprised that he did so well and that he hated to miss the Lawton race because he was leading in points there. He finished 3rd the next day at Dewey behind Gene See and Larry Wilson and ahead of Mike Peters. He and Mike ran each other hard for a long time and never touched and they were as close as they could be. It was as good of race as you cold ask for.

I am not sure but didn't Darrell run a Chevy 6 cyl, if he did he was one of the few to win a race at Tulsa that year.

Wow! I don't check in for a while and here you all are talking about one of my childhood heros. Hero, heck he was our neighbor. I'm flattered that Darrell's headers were that memorable since my dad built them. Dad also de-siamesed and ported all those 6 cylinder Chevy heads. Louis built the short blocks, stroked the cranks and ground the valves, but Dad did all the "trick" head work.

Darrell started out with flathead Fords and on the street, he was definitely a Ford man, but when the 250 Chevy became legal, he went Chevy and never looked back. He finally made the move to the V-8 in 79 or 80, but for the longest time, he was one of the guys to beat on the quarter mile in a modified.

Love seeing all these pictures of his Walker car. I think Dad may still have one of those old heads out in the garage.

Lawton had lots of modifieds and in my opinion they put on just as good a show as the supers did. Lots of modifieds came down from The City as well as Wichita Falls. There were a bunch of modifieds that came from Caddo County that ran good. Delbert Bybee always ran well with a Ford. He always ran a Ford sponsored by CH Malone Ford in Apache. CH Malone also had a great running Ford that ran in the supers and quite a bit in The City that goes back to 1965 with Glen "Hambone" Harrell. AJ Little drove a super for CH Malone from 1969-1970 too. One modified that came from Norman was #801 Darell Jennings that always ran well. It had a set of headers that made that car just scream, you could always hear it above all the others even when he was in the middle of the pack. Ken Hailey won the hearts of lots of fans in Lawton during those days. Shoot, even we had a hobby stocker class that put on great shows especially when everybody was running those 1955, 1956 and 1957 Chevys! I'm glad I was a witness to all those great days.

My daddy built that Ford for Mr. Malone. It was orange and #24. Hambone was the only one who drove it. We ran Friday nights in Wichita Falls and Saturdays in Lawton. It was the first car I remember, although it the first one Daddy built. (My Dad's name was W.B.Garvin. He passed in 1968.) Mr. Malone took us Al in the showroom and let us look at the Mustang before the dealers were allowed to show it. Daddy built cars for C. Wyman Jones of W.F. after that. Hambone drove for them, too. His son Randy still lives in Wichita Falls. Y'all have made me so happy. My older sisters may know more, and I know Randy does.

My daddy built that orange #24 super for Mr. Malone. It's really the first car I remember, although he built others before. Hambone was my favorite driver. His son Randy is on Facebook. We lived in Wichita Falls. #35 raced there and in Lawton, with and rarely in Altus and OK City. The tires on that car were racing slicks Lloyd Ruby had used, Daddy just scored them for the dirt tracks. The last cars Daddy built were for C. Wyman Jones, who also lived in W.F. The super was #1 and the modified was #2. Hambone (may he rest in racing heaven) drove #1, mostly. Gilbert Hudson drove sometimes and so did Pat Patterson and I.L. Smith. They usually had younger drivers take #2. Daddy, whose name was W.B.Garvin, died in '68 and The cars ran for a few years after that. There were some amazing mechanics then as well as great drivers. I was thrilled to read that I wasn't the only one impressed with #24.I will ask Mr. Jones' widow if she has any pictures of any of the cars.

My father, W.B. Garvin, built the super Ford (25) that Hambone Herrell drove for Mr. Malone. We lived in Wichita Falls. After working with Mr. Malone, Daddy worked with C. Wyman Jones, also from W.F. Hambone Herrell, Gilbert Hudson and Pat Patterson were some of the drivers that drove Mr. Jones' two cars, (1 and 2.) Daddy died in 1968, but Mr. Jones continued to run cars for several years.
