Annual Rose Festival June 1st thru June 10th, 1973, Portland, Oregon
Oregon Road Racing Started In 1905!
By Bob Mead, Regional Executive
Oregon Region, S.C.C.A.
The 1955 Tillamook Road Race was billed as the “first road race to be held in Oregon” That event was staged by the Four Cylinder Sports Car Club of Oregon — now known to all as Cascade Sports Car Club. This event should have been tagged the “first ‘sports car’ race to be held in Oregon” as road and automobile racing in Oregon dates as far back as 1905.
It was in 1905 that the first auto race was held in Oregon. A group of enthusiasts made the run from Portland to Gresham and back . . . and it only took them a day. In that same year Dwight Huss arrived in Portland in a 1903 Oldsmobile to win the 1st transcontinental race for automobiles 44 days after leaving New York. Also noteworthy in 1905 was the formation of the “Portland Automobile Club” by a group of Portland auto buffs.
In 1907 a worlds speed record was set at Portland’s now extinct Irvington race track by William Wallace. The Portland Automobile Club also staged the state’s first endurance run made from Portland to Salem and back. Over 40 automobiles were entered in that event.
Most of us think of the annual “Rose Cup” event as a rather new feature to the Rose Festival but in 1909 the Rose Festival Association featured a first-ever Nationally sanctioned road race which began at East Division Street near the present Russelville School and the course ran to Gresham and the finish was at Stark Street in Portland. Winners of this event received points toward a National Championship.
A new record was set in 1913 when F. C. Riggs drove a Packard from Portland to San Francisco in 36 hours and one minute.
The foreign car is not new to the Oregon Scene. In 1912 Portland received it’s first fleet of cabbies . . . Fiats.
As you can see Auto racing in Oregon has been with us for some time. The 1955 Tillamook event was only an important milestone. In researching the subject some rather interesting facts were turned up regarding the State’s automotive history.
It was Henry Wemme of Portland who, in 1899, became the first automobile owner of Oregon. That first horseless carriage was a Locomobile. Wemme topped that off with many firsts to the state: the first Reo; first Oldsmobile; first Thomas Flyer and the first Pierce Arrow.
The first auto constructed in Oregon was built in 1902 by W. S. Richards of Albany. Richard’s speedster topped out at a rapid 12 mph.
In 1903 Otto Wilson brought Salem’s first car to town, an Oldsmobile, and in the same year E. H. Ingham introduced the first automobile to Eugene.
Sooner or later “free” motoring had to come to an end and Oregon’s 1905 Legislature established a law to regulate motor cars on county roads. A $3.00 fee for registration started the ball rolling towards our present license system. The first Oregon resident to register an automobile in Oregon was Helmus Thompson of Eugene.
It was 1907 when the City of Portland staged it's first auto parade for the annual baseball opener.
In 1909 Portland put on the state’s first auto show in the Portland Armory and the state’s first “stop” street was at 20th and East Morrison and the first no-left was at the end of the Morrison Street bridge.
In 1910 Eugene received it’s first carload of autos ... Ramblers.
1911 was the year the license law was passed by the legislature.
In 1913 the Oregon State Highway Department was established and in 1917 it became the State Highway Commission.
In 1956 the “Second Annual Tillamook Road Race” was staged. This event was sponsored by the Cascade Sports Car Club and Pacific Sports Car Road Races Inc. and sanctioned by the Northwest Region, Sports Car Club of America. Entered in the 1956 event were such ancient drivers as: Wade Carter in an MGTD; Jack Scoville in an Alfa Romeo Giulieta; Harry Eyerly in a Corvette and a Crosley Special; L. C. Thomas in a C/P Jaguar XK120M. On the race official list we found some familiar faces: Cal Watson, Tech Inspector; Mrs. Harry Eyerly, Chief Scorer; Chickie Bucholz, Gary Long, Corner Marshal; Terry Bucholz, Aassistant Crowd Control; Jim Patterson, Corner Marshal and Governor Elmo Smith who was the guest of honor.
Since 1956 it’s been the Sand Prix, Loyalty Days, Oregon Grand Prixs, Newport, OIR, Delta Park and all of the many organizations and events which have contributed so much to the automotive sport in Oregon. We can be proud of the fact that we are all playing an important part in the history of auto racing in Oregon and the Oregon Region SCCA can go down in the books as one of the greatest contributors to the sport of auto racing in the State’s history.
Sports Car Club of America, Inc.
The Officers, Board of Directors and the members of the Sports Car Club of America join me in welcoming you to the Thirteenth Annual Rose Cup Races. We want to thank you for your support of road racing in Oregon; your attendance is what makes this type of event possible.
We are proud of Portland International Raceway and Michael Campbell, manager of this fine facility. Mr. Campbell has spent many hours in developing this racing plant into one of the best of its kind on the Pacific Coast. We are doubly greatful to the City of Portland and the Portland Rose Festival Association for their contribution to the sport. Each year the City of Portland has made improvements to PIR to make competition events as safe as possible for participants and for you, our enthusiastic spectators. The Portland Rose Festival Association has devoted considerable money and volunteer time in sponsoring and promoting Road Racing in Oregon. Without their support, this event would not be possible.
The Oregon Region, SCCA, is proud to present this National Championship points race, and we are honored to be staging the first in a series of six Gold Rush Series events. The Gold Rush Series is the first of its kind in the Northwest. National drivers can now compete for a pot of gold which will be distributed to high-point competitors at the end of the 1973 race season. The second Gold Rush Series event to be staged at PIR will be held July 21 and 22, 1973.
All of the work being accomplished this weekend is being done by volunteer road racing enthusiasts. Their goal is to make automobile racing the number one spectator sport in Oregon, and in the Nation. This is road racing at its best, not only because our workers and drivers are a cut above the average, but also because our followers are of the same cut. If you would like to take part in this great sport, write to the Oregon Region, SCCA P. 0. Box 431, Salem, Oregon 97303. There is something for everybody in the sport of road racing.
Thank you for being with us.....and have a fine weekend.
Robert A. Mead Regional Executive The Oregon Region SCCA
SCCA RACING CAR CLASSIFICATION
All of the cars that compete in SCCA club racing events fall into four general categories. Within these categories the cars are divided into 23 separate competition classes.
Pure racing cars — open-wheel, single-seat machines similar to but slightly different than international formulas 1, 2 and 3.
CLASSES: A — 5-liter (305 cubic inches), production based engines as all-out 3-liter (183 c.i.) racing engines.
B — Modified 1600 cc (98 c.i.), production-based engines.
C — Modified 1100 cc (67 c.i.) engines.
Formula F — 1600 cc (98 c.i.) Ford Cortina Capri/Pinto engines only, with limited modifications.
Formula Vee — Based on VW components, VW steering, gear box, suspension and wheels. Extremely popular with competitors as they are inexpensive and closely matched.
Formula Super Vee — Based on VW 1700 cc (104) c.o. engines. Less restrictive than Formula Vee.
Mass-produced sports sedans with rear seat passenger carrying .capacity that are recognized by SCCA. Cars ranging from Mustangs to Minis race in engine size classes. In classes B, C, D performance within a class is equalized by keying car weight to engine displacement so that cars with smaller engines compete at a lighter weight.
CLASSES: A — 2500 cc to 5000 cc (153 c.i. to 305 c.i.).
B — 1300 cc to 2500 cc (79 c.i. to 153 c.i.).
C — under 1300 cc (to 79 c.i.).
Mass-produced sports cars ranging from Sting Ray to Sprite. These cars resemble showroom cars but are permitted some modifications, largely in the interests of safety and parts life. Cars are classified by performance, not engine size, which offers more and better racing for a larger variety of models, including many out of production.
CLASSES: A through H, in descending order of performance.,
CATEGORY: Sports Racing
Sports cars that are nearly unlimited in design that compete according to engine size. They have two seats and four fenders but are very stark in fittings. They are also known as FIA Croup 7 cars and range from V-8 powered McLarens and Lolas to one-of-a-kind home-built specials with motorcycle engines. They offer probably the best opportunity in racing for individual ingenuity in auto design.
CLASSES: A — over 2000 cc (122 c.i. up).
B — 1300 cc to 2000 cc (79 c.i. to 122 c.i.).
C — 850 cc to 1300 cc (52 c.i. to 79 c.i.).
D — up to 850 cc (52 c.i.).
NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIP POINT STANDINGS NORTH PACIFIC DIVISION, SCCA May 23, 1973
While the June 9-10 Rose Cup National is the first championship event in the Sports Car Club of America’s North Pacific Division counting toward driver points, many competitors have earned points by racing in Arizona and Southern California.
Today’s races will go far toward determining the 1973 SCCA National Champions. Keep your eyes on those listed below. You’ll hear from them again. And, several will emerge at season’s end as national title-holders, because Oregon and the North Pacific Division have their share every year. Abbreviations: SF-San Francisco Region, NW-Northwest Region, Ore. -Oregon Region. ’Indicates points earned out of driver’s home region.

I would like to extend my welcome to all of you on behalf of the Portland Park Bureau and Portland International Raceway. The complex here at Delta Park has grown in scope over the years and we are extremely proud of the operation and the service that it provides to the people in the Northwest. In particular, we have seen some rapid growth in Portland International Raceway in the past few years. This is as a result of some hard work by the Rose Festival Association and the Portland Park Bureau. Their joint efforts have made Portland International Raceway one of the major racing facilities on the West Coast.
We are extremely proud of the facilities here at Portland International Raceway and we plan on making further improvements during the coming seasons.
Thank you for supporting the Raceway and the Portland Park Bureau.
If you have comments regarding the park and its use, please call on us at the Raceway office.
Best of Luck to all of you in the 1973 season.

HOW TO WATCH A SPORTS CAR RACE
By Tony Wascher
Sports car racing can be as confusing to the novice spectator as ice hockey or rugby. In order to enjoy it you want to know what is going on and where to watch. Once you’ve got the fundamentals you should be able to convince your neighbor that Mario Andretti is just another household name.
Traditionally sports car racing is referred to as “road racing.” Sports cars are put into one of two racing groups: “open wheel” and “closed wheel.” Simply, open wheel cars are the Indianapolis type race cars with cigar shaped, light weight bodies, without fenders over the wheels. Closed wheel cars include approved stock bodied sedans, roadsters, and special built sports racers, all with enclosed wheels. These two groups are also divided into “classes”, dependent upon performance capability and results a testing of production car classes and other groupings; classes may be found elsewhere in this program. Open and closed wheel cars are never mixed together in the same race, but different classes within the same group may compete together. With a total of 23 classes recognized by the Sports Car Club of America, mixing the classes is a convenience due to the time factor.
For example, a race may include A Sedans, A, B, and C Production, and A and B Sports Racers. These cars are not all equal in horsepower, but they do offer some degree of competition against each other. Unlike most other motor racing events, road racing combines the ultimate response between driver and car and a trying road course laid out to test both. The wrong response could change the end of the race and the overall winner could be any one of the other cars. Each class will have its own winner in the same race. For that reason a C Production car may finish eighth overall, in our example, but will finish ahead of all other C Production cars in the field. The driver’s efforts will still get him a checkered flag and a victory lap. The real racing goes on “back in the pack” where two cars of the same class may be “dicing” for position lap after lap. They may only finish fifth and sixth overall in the group, and third and fourth in the class, but they were racing. You watch to see where the race action is developing and then you pull for your favorite.
You don’t want to watch a road race on the straightaways, the test is in the corners and curves. Many a slower car with better handling has pulled it out in the corners over a faster car with poorer handling. At Portland International Raceway the best seats are at the far west end where you can see Turns 1 through 5 and the spectator bank at the east end where the cars come through the “circus” of Turns 6 & 7, then into Turn 8 and onto the straightaway.

NEW “GOLD RUSH SERIES”
PULLS COMPETITORS FROM AFAR
By Mac Townsend
There was a time, when the mere mention of SCCA racing and money in the same breath drew shocked stares and one was obliged to quickly change the subject. Not so anymore, although there are still a few who have yet to accept the fact that money is coming for the so-called amateur racers and that along with it is coming better racing.
This weekend’s racing here at Portland International Raceway is the initial event in a new 6 race series that is an important first step in this direction - the Gold Rush Series.
SCCA rules do not permit paying purses for National Championship races. Last year a measure was approved that would have allowed this in 1973 but at the last minute it was rescinded. The question is being rehashed and will likely be approved for 1974 but in the meantime the Gold Rush, as currently designed, has a points fund instead of a purse.
A points fund differs from a purse in that distribution is based on cumulative performance throughout a series rather than in one specific event.
The points fund won’t be all that large this year — perhaps $10,000 will be distributed next fall, but it will encompass all 21 National classes with the per class allocation depending on how many cars in that class run the series.
The third event in the Gold Rush Series will be held here at PIR in July.
The series is attracting interest from a large area. A glance at the hometowns on the entry list will give you an idea of how far the drivers have come to run this weekend. San Francisco is a tow of about 12-14 hours, LA requires about 20 hours towing, and Phoenix is about 26 hours away at legal towing speeds. From this you can gauge the expected intensity of the competition.
One extremely fast car out of San Francisco is the Yellow Chevron B23 class B Sports Racer owned and driven by Bob Fisher. Fisher has set track records every time out this year in this car, which was, by
the way, the car that won a major international series in Africa last winter. Monte Shelton has recently bought one of the last Porsche 910 coupes and should go extremely fast. Mike Eyerly of Salem in a similar car will be among the leaders in this group, which involves the big-bore production cars, sedans and sports racers. They'll go in race 6, The Rose Cup.
In A Production there should be a good field of big 454 cubic inch Corvettes including such experienced drivers as Seattle’s Rick Stark, San Francisco’s Jim Herlinger and Jim Barber, and Portland’s Ted Mathey. In the smaller engined Corvettes, class B Production, you’ll see a good race between Earl Bennett and Rich Sloma.
Class C Production will be a goodie too, with two very fast 2407 Datsuns driven by Walt Maas (San Francisco) and Jack Scoville (Corvallis) Scoville had some bad breaks last year and Walt took all the cookies but if things work out right Scoville might prove unbeatable on what is essentially his home track.
On the other end of the production spectrum look for some fast action in the H-G-F Production classes, especially in G which is a class that cars from the Northwestern area dominated at the American Road Race of Champions for the last two years. The front runners include the Spitfires of,Portland’s Tom Luk-ing and John Harris, and Lance Bonham with an extremely powerful and fast challenger in the person of Tom (“The Turtle”) Tuttle’s MG Midget.
If the open wheel formula machinery is your kind of excitement you can be assured that Formula Ford will take care of the thrills for the weekend. Many of the really fast cars and drivers from last year have moved to other classes and so it’s anybody’s ball game. Not at all unusual is to see the car that is in second place on the last lap and going into the last turn pull the slingshot act and lead at the flag. Formula Vee is another class where the practice of drafting, driving very closely behind the car in front in order to gain a bit of a tow, has been raised to an exacting science. Again, this race could go to any one of a dozen cars.
So, go get a cool drink, sit back and relax. You are going to see some real racing!

Improve your car’s handling, comfort and appearance with
PERFORMANCE parts and accessories.
Fender flares and spoilers look great. . . they also help your car handle better.
PERFORMANCE FENDER FLARES enable you to fit wider wheel rims and tires than are possible with stock fender contours. Installation requires some time and effort, but you can do it yourself. Flares are available for the Datsun 240Z, 510, 610, 1200, Toyota Celica, Mazda RX2, Capri, and BMW 1600/2002.
FRONT SPOOKS AND REAR SPOILERS improve the aerodynamics of any car, resulting in greater stability in cross-winds and at high speeds. PERFORMANCE has Spooks and spoilers for Datsun 240Z, 510, 610, 1200, Toyota Celica, Pinto, Vega, and Capri.
An inexpensive but effective suspension modification is a set of DELRIN OFFSET SUSPENSION BUSHINGS, which we manufacture for the Datsun 240Z, Datsun 510, and Mazda RX2.
The Datsun 240Z is a family car with the PERFORMANCE 2+2 seat.
Our 240Z rear seat is contoured in molded fiberglass and foam cushioned, like twin bucket seats for the kids. It is easy to install, and snaps in or out in a jiffy. The Sears Child Safety Harness can be used with this seat, and we highly recommend it.

THE ROSE CUP RACES and PORTLAND INTERNATIONAL RACEWAY
By Bob Ames
Last year’s program outlined something of the history of the Rose Cup Races and the track here at Delta Park. Much has happened in a year’s time. Last September saw the first fully sanctioned professional race, a 2.5 Trans-Am and Professional Super-Vee event sponsored by the Portland Rose Festival Association.
Those in attendance at that event will agree the races were very much worth watching. On the other hand, while the event was a technical delight it was nearly a financial disaster! Right up until the afternoon of the race we thought we had a real winner on our hands. Everyone cooperated, the weather was beautiful, the entry outstanding and the publicity as good as hoped for. Unfortunately, the 2.5 Trans-Am Series had been decided prior to Portland, with Datsun the winner. In addition, it was late in the season and whenever you’re running races in September you face the possibility of conflicting with vacation plans and students returning to school. There are also those that regard this “small bore” racing as unexciting. Well if that kept them away from Portland International Raceway last September, they made a mistake! While Datsun ran away with this race as well as others during the year, there was a lot of extremely close racing back in the pack and our only chance to see a long distance event with the fueling stops and exciting pit action here in Portland.
While we lost money on racing for the PRFA last year because of the September event, we’re back again in ’73 as enthusiastic as ever. This ought to tell you something about our feelings toward the sport.
As you can see looking around today, a lot has happened at PIR in the last nine months. The city has added new highrise bleachers on the south side of the drag strip, the restroom facilities we promised you last year are now well under way, and we’ve even got
around to paving some of the pit area. You might also notice that we have a permanent office at the facility where Mike Campbell, since last July 1 the track manager, holds forth.
Mike Campbell has done an absolutely fantastic job for Portland International Raceway during the last year. The facility is in operation nearly every weekend of the year, not just five months out of twelve. As a result, our income has come up substantially and our debt reduced even faster. Mike has also been solely responsible for the sale of signs on the new fencing along the dike. With an office at the track and a fulltime staff we are able to do a lot of things. The track is open at least one day a week for testing and for recreational motorcycle riding in the winter when no other events are planned.
There is also a new drag strip operator at Delta Park, Bill Doner, whose headquarters are in Seattle. Doner is probably the most successful drag race promoter in this part of the country, operating strips throughout Washington and in California at the famous Irwindale facility.
As a result of all this increase in activity the Rose Festival Association’s loan, which was incurred two years ago to make necessary improvements at the park, is down from $100,000 to $40,000. At this rate we should pay the remaining balance from our 15% of gross receipts within just a few months. A portion of every dollar you spend at Delta Park goes toward helping reduce the debt load and ultimately build better facilities.
The Rose Cup Races which you will be seeing this weekend are nearly unique in this country. They are without doubt the best National races to be seen west of the Mississippi. Indeed they are among the only profitable amateur road racing events seen anywhere. It is only with your continued support that this event has existed for 13 successive years and has become the “biggest” name National in the western U. S. We only hope you will have as much fun this weekend as we will.
