Picture File 2and01-t.jpg Jack Greedy and Bentley Warren wrecking very hard inbetween 3-4 at Oswego. It happened on the last race in Oct. 69, Bentley hit so hard that while he was at the hospital he kept saying that he had to get back to the track so he could win the Classic, Now mind you, he had already won the Classic a month earlier on Labor Day Weekend Sept. 69, but the doctors and nurses could not convince him of that fact. This accident I think pretty much ended Jack's racing. Picture File rarewin1-t.jpg Bentley Warren in the Snyder 77, an old Swift car.
