Feature Page - Nolan Johncock

Picture File NJ71-1.jpg
Nolan grew a beard for the 1971 season and hooked up again with Max Dowker to drive a new #7. My mom (big fan of Noley) says the beard was a good idea! To me, I thought he looked like Abraham Lincoln, but mom liked it.

Nolan raced a lot in Sandusky in 1971. Alas, he was to lose his life that year in a tragic accident there, killed instantly when his car flipped off the track.
