Post by theracer120 » 2 years ago



I'm wondering if anybody was hurt in the first crash here.

Great video. I'll look at the IDs.

No can do. I can't find any stats that match anything I see.

The #31 car at the beginning of the video could be Ronnie Bucknum during the 1966 USRRC race. Which leads me to the conclusion that the footage probably isn't from the same race/meeting.

John "Buck" Fulp won the race USRRC event held at Riverside on May 1, 1966 in his #26 Lola T70-Chevrolet. Bucknum, in #31, DNF'd with heat exhaustion. #64 is 11th place finisher Budd Clusserath in his McKee Mk.6-Oldsmobile.

I suppose that it's Salyer crash at Riverside in 1966

At Riverside in early 1966 Salyer had a 'big one' with the McLaren, destroying the car. Thus began his association with Bob McKee, which lasted the rest of his racing career. Salyer took delivery of a McKee Mk VI and won the SCCA Class C National Championship, winning the Runoffs at Riverside that November.

I believe you're correct, and I'd forgotten to revise the list, sorry about that. Fixed, and thanks for the ID.
