Bruce Walkup in the #97 Agajanian-Faas Racers Wynn's Spit Fire Mongoose-Offy at the inaugural Ontario 500 in 1970. Walkup would start 28th in the 33 car field and fall out on lap 117 with an overheating issue, finishing 16th.
Under that yellow rear bodywork is Drake-Offy #503. Soon-to-be installed in our 1973 Grant King Racers Kingfish chassis. The Offy came to us aboard Eagle #7228 in 2016, but was in desperate need of a rebuild. Then, through a trade, the Eagle was reunited with its original motor, and this engine became destined for the Kingfish.
Thus, the 159 ci work of art was rebuilt by the late-great John Martin in the summer of 2019. It would be the final engine he would build, as he passed away on November 20, 2019 at the age of 80.
