    Great stuff! I always liked that team. I wish that things were still like that.
    Proud to be a complainer.

        As I look back upon my time with the Armstrong Mould Racing Team through the focus of reality, I realize that most of the legends and myths about the team are true.

        Armstrong Mould Racing was quite a remarkable team. Our inventory included four Indy cars, two dirt champ cars, two pavement sprint cars, two dirt sprint cars and a midget. These cars were all raced at every opportunity by a crew of only six to seven guys. In 1979, Armstrong Mould Racing fielded over 100 race entries in all USAC divisions."

        Those were the days! IIRC this team was definitely considered to be a big buck team at the time.

        Mac, you said you had more stories. I for one would love to read some more of them.
        Some people will do nearly anything in order to be able to not do anything.

            After reading that, it kinda makes one wish we were with the team, back then. Ah, the good old days!

              Mac, have you written any more articles for OWR. I really did enjoy this one.

                John, thanks. You showed there is such a thing as cyber-mothballs.

                One thing about ol' Mac. If you ain't sure of his opinion, he'll be happy to share it with you. Fun guy to be around.

                I'd be curious to know who has the most racing stories around this forum. Mac? Taz? Lenny? Eagle? Or Dick?

                No matter, because those of us who love to hear the stories are truly blessed to be able to hear their telling.

                  It really IS all good!

                    They actually later had at least two midgets as both of his sons began driving.

                      Excellent piece by Mac.

                      Wow. Four cars at some events....and solid race drivers in all of them...

                          very, very good, mac - thanks! .. and thanks to taz for the heads-up.

                          those stories were a hoot.

                          i was there for several of your many wins. after suddenly finding myself 'single' in '79, i started stooging for Dave Peperak alot that year, and some after that. you guys were the 'big dogs'..no question about it. a real 'pro' outfit -- with results to match.

                          was also at the Milwaukee Tony Bettenhausen 200 in '79, to see your win and strong team finish there. got some good shots from that day.

                          impressed, too, with your early 'bleeder' technology.

                          yeah, like DannyB said, cyber mothball apparently do work.

                          thanks to Len and all at OWR for re-releasing that gem!

                            How come Howdy Holmes is mentioned but not the Orbitor?

                              maybe it's still spinning wildly down the backstretch. that was quite a sight.
