1973 Spring Sizzler Recap

2nd Annual Spring Sizzler Recap

 Sizzler-1973The Pinto Revolution was now in full force. Where fortune deserted Ed Flemke in the inaugural event, it stayed with him this year, as the cagey veteran held off a hard charging Fred DeSarro over the final 30-laps. Rounding out the top-5 was Maynard Troyer, Virginian Paul Radford, and Guy Chartrand in Ed Cloce’s No. 69. Cloce today remains part of the modified scene. There were 140 modifieds in the pits. This was the first Spring Sizzler promoted by the Arute family.
