I found some photos on a CD, saved from the great computer crash.
My apologies and credit to unknown photographers, but they might have come from Roger's website, Ted Clifton's collection, or the Allison nee Wimpffen book research I did bc. (before computers)
The auto show pic came from Fred Schuchard.

These are names mentioned frequently on the site, people who played a big part in the US story.

Ray Hoeper advises son Mason on his first event racing Courier 100/106/L.
The Wisconsin team ran the ELVF at Road America, September 2019.

Still taken from Mason's Youtube post, in-car camera.

Stills taken from the RA500 coverage (cue Les Keiter, narrator) found now on youtube.

This is the 1963 debut of the Elva-Porsche (70P/025) expected to do well in the Under 2liter class, but Bill Weusthoff and Augie Pabst bring it home first overall.

Les congratulates team owner "Jim" Nichols at the end, seen here to far left, in usual cap.
Smiling Weusthoff (left) drove first 84 laps but after a spin, turned it over to a rested Auggie Pabst (right) whose Scarab expired very early on.
