Todd- Thank you so much for posting those films. I hope you had great times with the family, and maybe your dad won a few. No bodywork, no kartstands, enduros that would fit in the back of a wagon, and it sure was a Mac world. More than any of that, the background of the shots are worth their weight in gold. I’d kill for any of those cars.
Wow! IRP 1974 Grand Nationals footage. Was the film Reed Light or Heavy? I ran both, if I remember right, there were 144 karts in Reed Light. I was around #70 and looked left and right on the starting grid and the view was endless sight of karts. I ended up 10th in Reed Light.
