Paul Thimm Jr.’s house and racing garage are only a couple miles from Maple Grove Raceway. The local economy will surely benefit from the Mohnton, Pa., racer winning Sunday’s $10,000 first prize in the Spring Footbrake Nationals.
In the final, he beat Old Bridge Raceway Park regular James Young (Parsippany, N.J.) in a very close call. Both drivers jumped the start too quickly, but it was Young who got the red light and the foul because his reaction time was a mere .004 quicker.
Moving through the ladder, Thimm’s ’27 Roadster faced some stiff competition, but he received the benefit of some itchy trigger fingers. More >

At the end of the afternoon, Moshier’s entry – a 1971 Vega – had reached the final round. And on the other side of the bracket for the final was . . . . Moshier’s second entry. More >
