Picture File 72-07Rescino-a-t.jpg Nick Rescino - San Jose Speedway - This is the 1972 version of the car that would later become nick's dirt track super. You can tell by the roll cage this is the same car as in the later photos. Picture File 76Rescino1-t.jpg One of Nick's first visits to West Capitol Raceway in Sacramento, Ca. Notice the motor is still pretty far forward. Picture File 76Rescino2-t.jpg Now, the motor's been moved back, and a new innovation appeared, downtubes extending from the roll cage to the frame. Remeber this was 1976, probably 7-8 years before this appeared on a Sprint Car!!!
Picture File 77Rescino3-t.jpg This was the final configuration of the car, now fully set up for the 1/4 mile clay track of West Capitol Raceway in Sacramento, Ca. Nick won the 1979 track champinoship. The final champinoship in the track's history. He also, I believe, is the last driver to win an World of Outlaws feature in a Super Modified.
