Baker Makes History... Again
After breaking the 200mph lap record at Talladega in March 1970, Buddy Baker proudly posed with the pit board for the well known press photo you see below. Larry Rathgeb led the crew that prepared and fielded this car for Chrysler Engineering.
After the record run, Ron Killen who worked on the electronics of the data acquisition equipment for the Chrysler development team wound up with the pit board and put it away for safe keeping.
In 1990, Larry Rathgeb retired after a long career with Chrysler. At his retirement party, Ron Killen was there to present Larry with the pit board which had never been wiped, and was now beautifully framed.
