Sports Car racing in the 1960’s – some history

Racing in the early 60s

Some would say the 1960’s were the good old days, for me they were….

In 1962 I was a junior in high school and living in Nanticoke, Pennsylvania, a small anthracite coal mining town, on the Susquehanna River in north east Pennsylvania.

During the previous three summers my father would take my brothers and me to the Giants’ Despair Hillclimb just outside Wilkes-Barre where motorsports legends like Carroll Shelby, Roger Penske and Oscar Koveleski raced their Ferraris and Porsches. It was then I fell in love with sports car racing.
