Forty-five teams competed for 20 spots in the Driveline 100 race June 28 in Norway, Michigan's Upper Peninsula. The Pay-Per-Lap event was a first for circle track racing as far as we know and a complete success. Dark clouds hang over the eventual winner's car in the foreground. That was evidently a good omen. Although it looked like rain was coming to the track all morning, the special guest and legendary Midwest race driver Dick Trickle, promised the teams in the drivers' meeting that he was working on the weather. By race time, the sky cleared and we saw a dry, clean race.
