                                                                                                                                      Story By Paul Bredenberg
   
   
An interesting short story. Last spring, a man named Jack Smith, Jr. called me from California, saying he is the son of the late Jack Smith who raced with the CARC from 1946 to 1951. He was also CARC President in '50 and '51. Jack, Jr. and his nephew, also named Jack Smith, were interested in his Dad's racing, so I dug up everything I had on Jack Sr. and asked some of the remaining old timers what they remembered. I put together a packet of pictures and program notes mentioning Jack. He was so grateful that I decided to build a model of the car to send to him. I got the car done in late summer but didn't get around to getting the decals finalized and printed until December. I sent him the model and received back a wonderful thank you card from his wife, Cynthia, telling me that Jack had died in September. She said that the model would be preserved as a family heirloom. Sad to receive that bit of information, but still glad to have honored this man's memory and contribution to local racing.

                                       NEW DIRECTION FOR CARC!

                                                                    602 Crate Motor Rule For the CARC Mod Coupe's

Monday, August 7th, 2017

Due to the fact that many drivers and teams are already in preparation for the 2018 season we want to announce that the Mod Coupe division will in fact be moving to an exclusive 602 Crate Motor rule in 2018 and beyond. We will also be standardizing several other aspects of the rules for the Mod Coupes as we transition this division into a more affordable, fun, yet still very fast and competitive division.

Please stay tuned for further announcements regarding this exciting new development in the Mod Coupe division.
