    In 1967 the Hoerr team returned to Riverside with the fastback Charger shown below in Riverside's turn #6. The car ran close to the top drivers in practice and qualified 9th.

    In one of the final practice sessions, something went wrong and Billy Foster hit the turn #9 wall at the end of Riverside's long, long back straight. He didn't survive the crash.

    Rudy Hoerr continued in USAC for a few more years and had Al Unser Sr, among others, driving his Mopars.

    I tried viewing that file you posted in #83 above and was immediately told that I had to log in to view it. Of course, I was already logged in to get to the thread.

    After re-logging in, I tried to edit the above post and was immediately told that I had to log in again. I logged in again, tried to edit, and was knocked off again. After doing that several times, I added this post which was accepted.

    Much more to come in Historical if I can get my attachments posted without being told that I have to log on again (and again).

    This leads me to believe the issue at hand is with the Attachments system. Still investigating.

    I just got logged out after reading your last post- no attachments involved. I clicked onto every other post on the first page of Historical with no problems. As soon as I clicked onto this one to read your latest post, I was notified that I was no longer logged on.

    Odd. And it's in this thread or a different one? (I want to know if it's an odd character in the URL.)

    The fact that there are many posts on a page with attachments might be something to consider.

    Just opened a few attachments without any issues... Still logged in, no issues.

    Here are a couple of test photos. (I could use one of these batterys, too.)

    I was logged off just clicking onto your attachment. I clicked onto every other thread on the first page of historical and stayed logged on. As soon as I clicked onto this one and then went back to the main page, I was told that I had to sign in (again). At least the board is now remembering my password so all I have to do is click onto "log in".

    That's a pretty significant set of symptoms did you PM this post to Strat and Dave, or post it in the Troubleshooting /Suggestions thread?

    I got logged off just trying to reply to your thread and then immediately after I posted it and left the thread. The problem seems to have gone away for me on all the other threads that I have viewed/replied/attached on lately. I'll just stay off of this one for awhile.

    Dave PM'd me that they will be going to a new forum soon and that should take care of any remaining problems.

    After Billy Foster was killed in the 1967 crash @ Riverside, owner Rudy Hoerr tried Al Unser Sr in his (former #22) Dodge Charger. The combo went on to win the 1967 USAC Stock Car Rookie of the Year award. After multiple top 5's in '67 and two 2nd's in 1968, Unser drove the Hoerr Dodge to victory in a USAC road race @ Mosport (Canada) in 1968, beating AJ Foyt in a Ford. Hoerr stopped competing at the end of the '69 season, then came back sporadically starting in mid 1971 but fielded Ford products instead of Dodges.

    Re Moparfins, that remains a work in progress, and I expect the resurrection to come later today.

    As usual, winning big in stock car races brings added publicity from your OEM "partners". Here is a Goodyear ad featuring McClusky after he won the USAC Pocono race in 1972.

    The other Unser brother - Bobby - also raced Mopars in USAC for several years.

    Here he is racing on the IRP road course in 1970;
