My buddy Chad Freeman brought his ex-Bobby Unser/Frank Riddle/Lee Parker Sprint Car down from Kentucky to run the DAARA Winternationals on Thursday/Friday, then ran with the Wingless Sprints at Citrus on Saturday… All with gorgeous weather… Then look what he had waiting for him when he pulled in his driveway this morning!!
That is freaking cool that he had that car at both shows. I’d seen a bunch of Sprint cars at the DAARA event that almost appeared as they would today, even though they are much older than they appear.
Last year, Matt Jarrett brought out his Grandpa Dave’s #9 Vintage Sprint, put in his Super Stock motor, and ran with full-blown Winged Sprints at OSW.
Neither of these cars is a realistic threat to win… But they have one hell of a time doing it. And both showed very respectable for what they have, versus what the top teams have.
Looks like my place in Tennessee a couple weeks ago.
Looks like a coat of white paint to me. You should see my backyard!!!
