1969 - Bob Wheelock (C Production) and Corky Bell (D Production) discuss tactics ...
In 1969, Bob Wheelock and Corky Bell both took their Ring Free Oils Datsun 2000s to first place in the South West Division's C Production and D Production classes respectively. Both were invited to that year's American Road Race of Champions at Daytona where they performed well. In the C Production race, which was dominated by Porsche 911s, Bob was the second Solex Datsun racer to finish, taking 8th place behind fellow Datsun racer Don Kearney in 7th. In the hotly contested D Production race, which featured a field of Hitachi aspirated Datsuns, Corky Bell also finished 8th, behind 6 Datsun 2000s led by winner Jack Scoville and Brian Fuerstenau's Triumph TR4.
