Old Bones

The car is the photo is one that Blu Metz was shepherding at Sundance Vacations Speedway this past Sunday. It is the former Storero #01, and Blu happily noted that the car raced at Pine Brook back when Andy Storero was driving.

But, obviously a car that is now more than 21 years old would require some changes and updating to remain competitive today. I suggested that the car was the Storero car in the same vein as the old “George Washington’s Ax” story: It’s George Washington’s ax, although through the years the head has been replaced once and the handle has been replaced three times.

“Okay,” said Blu, pointing to the car’s nerf bar. “That nerf bar definitely raced at Pine Brook!”
