These pictures from the backyard truly reveal the roots of  Backyard Racing.

Dad and Dave Chase,,,,  bumpers locked in battle.

Dad, 3rd in the B feature           Dad, 4th in the C feature.

If you look real hard you'll see Al Franks in the B feature results in the left article and in the C feature results in the right article.

Dad, in '98, three years before he died.  Helping as always.
