CPTV FEATURE - BROTHERS, A CHEVY II GASSER AND HONORING THIER FATHER

Joey and Jerry Birch race a C/Gasser in the Southeast Gasser Association. The car they run is a tribute to the Gasser their father ran and dominated back in the 1970s while racing in the Upstate of South Carolina.

In this video, the brothers talk about the importance and memories of watching their father race back in the 1960s. Ironically, part of their father Joe, who passed away in 2009, still rides with them. The engine in the car is the last one he built.

A story worth sharing.

STORYTELLERS AT CPTV - AUSSIE VICTOR BRAY TELLS THE STORY OF "YEP, THAT'S SCOTTY CANNON'S BOY"

Depending on whom you might ask, Bundaberg Rum might be considered a relaxing drink to a rare few, but to others it can be the devil. While Scotty Cannon was a bruiser back in his Pro Modified days, his son and eventual Pro Modified champion Scott Cannon was a quiet-natured teenager who hoped to follow in his dad's footsteps.

In 1999, when he joined his dad in a trip to Australia to race with Victor Bray, the kid took on the spirit of his dad in the scrappy nature. Well, Victor tells the story of the dad Junior went wild on the "Bundy" rum and then clocked a few fellas on the "melon".
