|Chuck Tannlund -- 1
Chuck was one of the best of the Northern
California drivers in Class
"G" Modified in 1961. He drove Pru Baxter's Lotus Mk.11 and often
battled Art Snyder and others in this hotly
|Chuck and Art Snyder in the corkscrew
at Laguna Seca. Pete Biro's fine photo captures the intensity of
|Chuck describes the race:
"The race with Art Snyder at Laguna was
my best win. Art and I left the pack (including Frank
Monise, John Timanus, Ron
Hathaway, et al) in the dust with Art leading almost the whole race
until the last lap. I was able to sneak by, take the lead, and set
a new lap record."

|More from Chuck about this race:
"The epic race between myself ? Art was
on Saturday, June 9th, 1961. On Sunday, I had the lead, but the Climax
lost a valve early in the race. I think Ron (Hathaway) or John (Timanus)
went on to win."
|Chuck and Art go at it again.
This time at Santa Barbara, September 2-3, 1961.
