Slight correction in your Nov. 2018 “Out the Back Door” story about Tom Mcewen. When Tom took over driving duties for Gene Adams in 1961, the car wasn’t known as the Albertson Olds. When Albertson Olds’ only driver, Leonard Harris, lost his life driving a different car in October 1960, the Albertson Oldsmobile dealership discontinued its sponsorship immediately. It was done as a tribute to Leonard. And Ronnie Scrima, co-owner of the car, also creased his connection to the famed car, saying he just could not emotionally handle it since Leonard was a close friend. This left only Gene Adams, who was as devastated as Ronnie, but decided to continue racing the car. He chose Mcewen as the driver for the car, now known as Mcewen-adams. Mickey Bryant Eric Rickman shot Mcewen (who HRM was still calling Mckewen) at the 1961 NHRA Nationals as the McewenAdams rail (far lane) ran Pete Robinson for the AA/D elimination. Mcewen got out first, but Robinson caught him, and went on to be the meet’s Top Eliminator.
