More Bob Harris & the Campbell Special

The Campbell Special was originally a Class "G" Modified car with an 1100cc. JAP motorcycle engine and chain drive.

When the car appeared at Santa Barbara for the Labor day event on September 2-3, 1961 a Chevy V8 had replaced the little JAP.

Driver Bob Harris showed the car's potential in practice when he blasted past drivers expected to be contenders in the main event.

Here he sets up Jack McAfee for a pass exiting Turn 7.

Harris makes short work of Steve Baughman's Maserati 200-SI.  A month later, both cars qualified for the Riverside Grand Prix.
March 3-4, 1962.  The Special, now short-tailed, in the bleak, barren pit area of Riverside Raceway.
