Meet Us at Put-In-Bay This Weekend

We're headed to South Bass Island, Ohio, this weekend for the ninth annual Put-in-Bay Road Race Reunion.

Word of the Day: Kastner-Brophy Racing

Several factory-backed teams dominated the ’70s SCCA road racing scene, with Triumph employing two teams: Bob Tullius’s Group 44 Inc. in the east, and Kastner-Brophy Racing in the west.

Word of the Day: Group 44 Inc.

The look was unmistakable: white paint, green trim and a logo featuring a reversed pair of 4’s. Team uniforms were spotless. Group 44 Inc. helped raise the bar on car prep and team presentation.

Where Did the Modern Sports Car Come From?
