  Anyone have any results from the Bicentennial Warm Up Race? I know Alan Payne won, but not any other results. Any pictures?

Alan Payne is one old name who used to drive up from D.C.to the monthly races at C&C in CT during the 70's. The thing I admired Alan for, he was the only Pro  who wound his own arms, except when Team Camen showed up. Alan's cars were always fast.

Alan was a great guy and racer. He used to run for me and would drive me crazy as he would keep winning races with one of my $10.00 chassis when I was trying to make some money selling the better $25.00 ones. Lol.
