A few words about the car:
This yellow car with black interior was raced in
the 1990 Escort Challenge Series by Bakeracing
(Kim Baker) and normally ran as the #4 car. The car has
a number of modification done for that series as you can see in the pictures.
Raced in 1990 by primary driver Lou Gigliotti and also by Bobby Caradine (revenge of the nerds movie lead actor). In 1991 World Challenge the primary driver was Shawn Hendricks. He ended up winning the 1991 World Challenge Championship with this car. This car also still has the trick Backeracing "stock" suspension and the experimental Delco 3 Piston brakes that were used by the Corvette teams in 1991.
Currently owned and raced by Ray Zisa, Corvette Center (CT). Look for Ray at a race track near you!
