    Good eye Largecar. 119 is a good number for your guess, but I wonder about the German flag (not exactly, but close). Michael Werner was my guess because he was a Merc guy and sometimes he ran under other numbers if he raced in different countries. In Europe he was normally 7. It might be that Kenny Kitson ran under a German flag in some U.S. race. This was common.

    ADD: My mistake about the flag. It's vertical, and I thought later it might be Belgian, but it's not. Don't know what country that is.

    Hey John, did not know that. Good info. How many Sid Sons were made if you know? Looked pretty much like a Merc event. What can you tell us about the Chrysler guys?

    About 15 - 20 were built. Our T*A*R*T team had 7. One even was in Texas. Roddy Foreman’s Dad Jim had one. Don’t know much about the Chrysler’s other then they weren’ t competitive

    Thanks John, I need to look at some old pics from the Motorsport days and see if I can find one of Jim. I'm not good at ID'ing some of the boats I'm not familiar with so if I find one of Jim, I will ask for your help.

    These are GREAT pictures.

    I think Largecar91 is right on with Stickle #254, Downard #251 both with Merc factory team Molinaris and Kitson #119 in a Kitson/Milesmaster.

    I think Willabee (Bill Welsh) wrote that the St. Mary's race became a major stop for both Merc & OMC.

    The OMC team collectively did not race at St. Mary’s at least from 1970 - 1973. I attended representing the T*A*R*T team. I also recall Jenk’s team there one year with Earl Benz driving

    Brings back memories! Lots of Merc and Chrysler stackers. I see a red stripe Twister in one pic. Ted Morgan engine?
