 I recognized a picture in the 1971 bronco years section. The # 23 car headed the wrong direction was driven by my dad, Dave Wichman. The car was owned by Larry West. My dad was also a member of the Roll Over Club! He built several cars, one was driven by Ron Stander for a short time. Thought you might like to know. .... Steve Wichman
