Stock cars from the 70's that raced in the Kansas area. This web site was started on 1/7/01. Many of the photos are of drivers that ran in the Kansas area, including Salina, Hutchinson, Great Bend, Dodge City, Wichita, Topeka and Enid OK. Lets take a look back at some of the stock cars/late models from the 70's in the Kansas area

Well lets get this one out of the way, so we can get on to the real racers. This was the late model 66 Chevelle I started building, and never made it to the track.

Mel Potts #0 leads Larry Walters #68 from Lowry City Missouri at the Kansas State Fair Races in probably 1976.
With just a few laps left Larry tapped Mel to take the lead with what has been called the Bump and Run move of late. Mel was not a happy camper after that action. Larry went on to win the A main.
