  • All in a Studebaker day...

    thanks to google alerts...

    January 30

    1918: Ralph Zrimsek is born on this day. Records from NASCAR's early days are sketchy, but it appears Zrimsek is the first to drive a Studebaker in a NASCAR race. Zrimsek's NASCAR career comprises one race, the seventh race of the inaugural Strictly Stock season in 1949. In a 200-lap event on the half-mile dirt track of Heidelberg Raceway in Pittsburgh, Zrimsek brings home his '49 Studebaker 21st in the 23-car field, completing 59 laps.

    oh, and its my dad's (Tom B's) birthday, too - although many years later [8D]

    IT seems that Ralph Zrimsek achieved his majority on my natal day.

    Thanks, George.
