What ever happened to Richie Evans Jr.? I remember hearing that he was racing a modified in New Jersey some time ago, and had shown some talent for it. Then the updates stopped, and there hasn't been anything mentioned about him for a long time...

Richie Jr. runs Sixty One Fabrication in Charlotte, NC. He does the go cart and motorcycle thing now in the way of racing. He had a Late Model stint down south before he appeared with his orange #61 Sportsmodified at Tioga and at Wall around 2002. He's on Facebook.

      I remember that day at Tioga when that Orange #61 came out onto the track drove by gave me cold chills seeing it and hearing the name Richie Evens Jr. .    Never knew he had a son .

What ever happened to Phil Youngs, aka Bumper-jack. Is he still among the living? How about Dick Gamlin and another one is Ron Hall. Haven't heard anything about those guys in a long time.

Went to Phil's junkyard a couple of times when I was gathering parts for my first late model.  Last I heard he was in Florida somewhere.  I remember his Camaro-bodied modified, pretty rough!

Wow Blake Carnahan..holy sh... I haven't heard his name in eons.  Number 00 if I remember right a Corvair body ( at least the one at U/R I recall.

I remember Blake as being one of the first to use nomex undergarments and gloves...ahead if his time there. I also remember some guys mocking him

behind his back for it....calling him a F1 wannabe.  Blake it seems had the last laugh and I'm sure he didn't consider safety a joke.
 
Blake Carnahan ran a '62 Chev bubble top...was team mate to Jim Thompson #01    Jack Naum #22    Wally Burnett #94x  John "Fireball" Roberts # 513 Don Bushbacher #671 Jack Emerson #17

Eddie was inducted in to the Oswego Speedway HoF in 2012. I hear he still goes up there.
