Jim Dieter up there with the top dogs. He's a local guy we used to race with. Last I heard he was working at Trinity, but that was 10 years ago or so. Thanks for the scan!

I spoke with Jim a few weeks ago, we know each other (along with Joel) from designing many of the Joel Johnson signature line of parts and cars at Composite Craft... He still works for Trinity or as they are called today, Epic right here out of Deland, Florida.
Ernie is a common sight around here at the local tracks, and is often also seen courtside at the Orlando Magic basketball games.
:D

Now why hasn't anyone done a replica of Ron Rosetti's yellow black theme'd JRX2 like the picture up top. Always a bright and beautiful car!

I like Ron's paint scheme, too.
Does anyone know where Ron Rosetti is these days?

Car #7 in this picture is mine. I remember standing next to Cliff and him saying before the race, "I hope my car doesn't wheelie over backwards". That was the first time I had seen a car wheelie from a dead stop.

That's an Andy's body. I purchased it from the hobbyshop portion of Race Prep when I got there. The car is my Houge car, which did not perform well at all on the west coast. I still have the car but not the body, although I do have a picture of the car sitting on the bathroom counter in a hotel out there.
