Brian:

This is my brother's car that Ronnie Black built for him. He had a bad wreck during the state fair races the night that Jimmy Whitson was killed. Jimmy had his wreck and was at hospital when my brother was taken there and was actually put in the same room with Jimmy. My brother's car was destroyed and he sold everything and quit racing after that episode.

This is Jack Belk early in the 1968 year..The headers show a Ford small block ,,this car was built by dad and Jay Carnes car owner of Neosho Mo in the Winter of 67-68....They changed to a Chevy Motor late in the year and the number style was different later in the year also..They blowed 7 or 8 head gaskets with that small block Ford that year at Tulsa while leading the A main with less than 5 laps to go...He did finally win one with the Ford before they went to a Chevy..I remember it was a weekly deal to tar down the top of the ford motor to see if it was trying to blow another head gasket..Jay blamed it on inconstant fuel.Because they had ran that motor all of the 67 years and won the Championship in Joplin with it on the smaller 1/4 mile track in a Sedan Modified...Dad said he was flat on the floor at Tulsa with it ..The night he finally won he was running half peddle the last 5 laps,,they tore the motor down and it was trying to blow another gasket then..Tulsa was a tuff track at times when it came to letting a motor breath...Dad was starting up front most of them nights because he only had point average from winning most of his heat races..The car was cut up a few years later and is not around today...

The car in the Back ground is the # 88 owned by the Johnsons,,it was probably driven by Dean Roper that night...That car is the old Ray Cates #2 Sedan that ran at Tulsa in 1966 and 1967..Dad drove for Johnsons 2 years later starting in 1970 in the old Nance house car #11 that became # 88 when dad drove it.

Is this car where they got the idea to add a spoiler to the Nance molds? Looks like it is a bolt on.

This is a home made car from Neosho Mo ,the Joplin Area.Alot of them were running home made spoilers..If i remember right it was a bolt on..Alot of them had that flip in the tail built into the fiberglass..A bolt on was the best way to get equal when your tail was rounded..That car only ran one full year and maybe as few races after that...The owner Jay Carnes went to Late Models and my brother Randy drove for him..Dad went with Al Weiland in 1969 back to Tulsa and Muskoggee...

Jay Carnes was a good car guy ,this was the only Supermod he ever built...He ran Mopar Motors and then Ran Fords Motors and some Chevys motors and won with all 3....He was something else..I am sad to say that Jay Carnes had a bad spell here a few years back with Alltimers and is in a home now with not many memorys of his past..He won Championships at Joplin and Neosho Mo,,with the Mopars and the Fords Motors..He was very good with Big Block Mopars........

I remember driving from Joplin to the Nance Speed Shop the winter after the 69 year..It was as good as they come .My dad and i went there with the Johnson to buy a car,,and they ended up buying the #11 house car for the 1970 year at Tulsa....That shop was like a modern day Napa and or Auto Zone but it was for Race cars...We went to 2 or 3 places up there that they had stuff at and looked at several cars..It was a great place......

Thank for posting these great Picture of the Gary Cole....Real nice older shots...

That one shot of right side of the 35 car with Gary and Crew ,look in back ground and the Blue with Red #9 Modified and looks like a young Mike Bickel setting on LF tire talking to someone, looks like the infield of 1/4 mile at the Fairgrounds ,you can see 1/4,1/2 mile and 1/2 mile fence in back ground and how about that battle tested right side nerf bar,lots of character built into that one on a race by race basis.
