Big group of SCK/NCK opens trying at Blackhawk IKF Nationals.

I remember the "cover kart" b-stock batmobile going off in turn 2. He crashed into Stallion Owner, Steve Huffman.

Also, a wild start...

Might be Scott's kart but it is not a Hartman chassis. I don't remember what kind of chassis Salyer used but the chassis in the photo looks a lot like a Hornet. Frame layout and upholstery are not anything like a Hartman twin.

Pete can correct if I'm wrong but his Open Light National winner in 1978 was a chassis he built specifically to run the Henline hand built water cooled motor so it would not have been raced the year before by Doug. It was just about a perfect copy of a Hartman chassis but the frame was not polished, just clean bare steel.

If memory serves me Pete used a Hooper chassis and Mike Colver tuned Ardelts to win both Open classes in 1979 and I ended up with the chassis he used in 1978 to lead the Yamaha race until I got a flat tire.
Getting too old to be sure of anything LOL

Scott Salyer's kart was a Ed Shiffert Chassis. It is the same as the chassis that Bobby Shiffert raced with the twin BM 130s as seen in the Blackhawk start picture. In my pictures go both karts ar the inagural NCK Laguna Seca race, Bobby's kart did not have front brakes. If I am not mistaken, Bobby's ride was owned by Pancho Gonzales (the Tennis player). I believe he owned the dark blue Zip 250 shifter that Rick Gifford was driving that day as well.
