Steve Krisiloff was classified 22nd in 1972 All American Racers Eagle #7225 at the Shaefer 500 at Pocono. The then-Art Sugai-owned #90 Eastside Cafe entry was sidelined after 32 laps with piston failure after starting 28th.
Meanwhile, Johnny Parsons managed 149 laps in 1972 All American Racers Eagle #7228 for then-owner Tassi Vatis. The modified #92 McIntire Chevrolet-sponsored machine had a piston let go, ending its efforts. Regardless, only eight cars were running at the end of the 200-lap affair, and Parsons was credited with an 11th-place finish after starting 19th.
