    Oh yes, I was alive and well in 1950 when he stopped at ‘our’ farm in SD after winning the “Pan American” (he is after all related, being my sister-in-law’s brother) He was returning to Portland after going to Detroit to ‘pick up’ a new cherry red 88 with compliments of GM. Thanks for sharing. elden nielsen

    It was either 1950 as Elden recalls or 1951 when Herschel stopped at the CHOG in Sioux Falls in his 50 Olds. I believe the Olds was yellow. A great memory for me. I also happened to be watching the race on Speed Channel when Herschel dropped out and sadly walked away to “retire”. Ed Borgers
