    My father, Riley Kimble, was one of the owners of this car, along with the leader of their group Ben Adams and two other owners, Hascal Lowery and Nelson Smith. The car is a Bill Hite built car. It was never run as a four wheel drive, always rear wheel drive only. The car won features in Jackson, Miss and in a special supermodified race held at the old Baton Rouge, LA 5/8 mile. Ikey Jerome was the only driver to drive it except for one night when Ronald Ellsworth drove the car when Ikey was in Oxford watching his son, Scott, play football In one Liberty Bell 300 in Houston the A-frame broke early in the race, they replaced it, and made up a bunch of laps finishing high up in the finishing order. Ikey was recognized after the race by the announcer for putting on such a good performance. Thanks for restoring a true Kimble family memory. Visit Toby Taylor's web site - - for some other great supermodified pictures from the Mississippi area.

      Billy's a friend of mine, Rat Lane drove one of Billy's 4 wheel drive car down here in Mobile and surrounding areas for a while.  Not sure if it was that car or not, but it was one with the Olds Toranado tranny/4 wheel drive.  Billy was way ahead of his time.

    SANFILIPPO FAMILY  ROCCO AND CHEATERS SPEED SHOP COLLECTION 031
    When I was a kid, Sonny Black was my hero! We saw him all the time when we went to the shop or to Rocco's home. (Rocco and my Dad were really close....almost like brothers!) Sonny always teased me, paid attention to me, called me "Little Man", (I was about 6 or 7 years old) and let me sit in his race car......... the 34 or 35 Chevrolet with a Cadillac engine. It was #80 or 88 as I recall, blue and white with red numbers. When I heard Sonny was killed driving the little super modified some years later..........I cried like crazy! I had lost a hero and a friend!

      Dick Trickle was the greatest short track racer I ever watched race and I watched all of them in the 70's & 80's, I started going to races in 1959.
