Kenny Weld won the National Open at Williams Grove for the third straight year, as well as the Knoxville Nationals.
Hi, I really enjoy looking at your website. When I first started going to the races Friday nights were at Roseville, Saturdays at Capital, and Wednesday at Hughes Stadium in Sacramento and Wally Baker was the 2 time defending champ. Wally was always my favorite and I loved the open comp battles in the Race of Champions with Al Pombo, who was my favorite "out of towner". Anyway, the last race I attended was the 1973 Gold Cup which included my favorites as well as a dominating performance by Jimmy Boyd. Best I remember was he lapped the field and Baker was a non factor, as were the rest of the drivers. I took a bunch of pictures from my vantage point in the turn 3 bleachers and am attaching one of Jimmy Boyd for you. Keep up the good work. The old guys deserve to be remembered.
