I am not sure whose car it was, I looked for a name on it when I was there, I am looking for my old programs to try & find a name & will post it here as soon as I find them.

When you find your programs, could you scan 1 cover from each year and send them to me? If you find any points champs, please send them along too.

Just curious cause about 2,3 years ago a friend of mine from Halifax, a guy by the name of Mike Ettet, was sending me lots and lots of old Jr. Hanley pics. I am a huge Jr. Hanley fan and collect anything I can on him. If you know of anything or have anything I would really appreciate it.

Back to the original subject though. He told me once about a friend of his who found an old stock car that was rotting away in the woods somewhere, can't remember where, but somewhere in N.S.

He told me that very early in JR.'s career, he once drove a blue #99 for another guy who owned the car. I was just very interested if that was the car or not. If it was that would be amazing. I am trying to talk to him again to see if he can tell me anything else about it as I am not sure as to the whole story. Haven't talked to Mike for over a year or so now and can't seem to find his e-mail. Think he might have changed it as my old one I have does not work.

Thought his friend said that Jr. Hanley's name was on the car as the driver but not too sure about that either.

I would really, really appreciate it if you could find out whose car that was and who drove it. Possibly send me any pics or info you might have on it as well.

Sorry to go on and on but I am very interested to see whether this was the car or not.

Anyone ever find out who drove the blue #99 in the pics. The old rotted out car that is. Would really love to know. Read the above post by me for more info.

Also, if anyone has an email for Mike Ettet, could they please let me know. Or let Mike know that I am looking for it. I was in contact with him a couple years ago while doing a search for old Hanley photos. Would like to get in contact with him again.

  I found an old program from 1966 and the 99 cars driver and crew were Harald Landry, Robert Yuille and Carl Shaw. The car was a 1947 Monark. Hope this helps. The event was No.18 and the headlines read Len Currie wins feature event and the gate prize was $15.00. After talking to my parents I found out that Len was no relation to me. It's still petty cool to see the history of the track and the people that use to race there. Rick C:0)

my dad and bob frank use to race back in the late 60's. They had a 56 yellow  ford or chev. I remember a few things when i was watching. Once bob roll it over the bank 2 turn and went down about 15 feet i think it was. Secondly on the 4th corner coming into the straight way front of the stands a wheel comes off one of the cars flying into the stands.

My mother took me hear in 1970. It was my first race.  I was only 10 and since then became a huge race fan going to many Nascar, Indy and F1 races. This is where it all started as my mother keeps telling me. Thanks for the page.

To Tony Mcgee who posted about a tire flying into the stands .I was at that race ,and if I'm remebering correctly , that tire hit a woman in the stands ,and sent her to the hospital . I think that they place her in an station wagon to meet up with the ambulance coming in from the city .

 I remeber sitting in  the stands at Seabreeze with my dad, drinking Pepsi from a long neck bottle cheering on any , and every driver . I have been to 4 formule one raceses, Busch , IRL ,champ car, local stockcar, and so on ,and soon, but I must say from what I remeber of Seabreeze I had some great time their .Those guys sure put on a hell of a show , they drove the wheels off of those cars.

I grew up a short walk down the road from this track. The race manager gave us free passes for all races because we were the only family that lived anywhere near the track. We used to go the morning after the races to pick up all the pop bottles to exchange for candy. I remember the original dirt track and recall them changing it to pavement later. We went to all the races for years. Loved the old stock cars. What a hoot it was. Dave
