J. C. took the big Pontiac Tempest to Hattiesburg, MS
to race in Edmund Hall's Baby Pro-Mod race. J. C. was to
compete in the 7.0 sec. class, but due to the lateness of the
race, he had to leave. The car was running in the mid
6's and J. C. would have had trouble slowing it down to 7.0
seconds. The car was running very good, but J. C. loaded up
and returned to Baton Rouge.
J. C. took
the big Pontiac to Shreveport, LA to race with the Shreveport

the first round of eliminations, he could not get it to start

enjoyed the trip and the company of all his teammates. Harry
