    Default 1971 Inland International Grand Lake St. Marys (Ohio)

    The Inland International Marathon was held off the East Bank of Grand Lake St. Marys. The first race was held in 1970 and I believe that 1974 might have been the last year for the race. I have quite a few photos and will post them if there is interest.

    I'll start with a few pictures of the local favorite Bill Petty from Wapakoneta, Ohio. Bill was the big winner in 1971.

    I have photos from several different years, I will stick with 1971 for now. If anyone happens to have a request let me know and I can look for a specific boat.

    I see your handle is Auglaize 99. I assume you are from this area? I live on the lake and have for a number of years.

    I don't live there anymore, but I grew up close to the lake.

    Glad there is some interest, I'll keep posting until everything worth posting has been posted. It will take awhile I still have quite a few slides that haven't even been scanned yet.

    Love any comments if you recognize or can identify anyone. For now I know the following drivers/boats

    199 - Bill Petty
    190 - Bill Seebold Jr.

    254 Tom Stickle, 251 Mike Downard ? 119 might have been Kenny Kitson

    This might be it for 1971, I do have photos from other years.

    Apparently Bill Petty used to say that he would race for a can of corn so race organizers awarded him a can of corn, they also gave him trophies and checks.
