My first favorite driver, Jerry Richer from Schaffer, Michigan. This guy is one of the main reasons I became a race fan, Jerry bought this car from Milwaukee's Bill Johnson in 1967.


Jerry had a bit of a problem up in Soo, Canada.
Here's the car when Bill Johnson sold it to him.

Jerry Richer in Wes Beckett's #2 car in 1969. In the 8 car is Ed "Stubby" Provo. Ed bought the car from Jerry after the 1968 season. Jerry didn't have a ride for the 69 season so Wes Beckett's car owner let him borrow the 2 car.

Miles Melius from Milwaukee. On e of the most exiting drivers I ever had the privilege of seeing race. It was an event when he would come up to Escanaba and kick our guys butts.





Jim Schwister was the car owner.


Miles on the left and Jim on the right with the 1967 Championship trophy.


Miles had quite a year.
