Steve Budney sent me a couple of photos of Skip Aksland he had taken in the good ol' days.
Steve thinks it's Daytona '77. Skip was up to 4th place when the clutch failed around the 22nd lap and was credited with 48th place.
This is from Loudon '78, with Rich Schlachter #48 nipping at Skips heels. Skip won the race with Mike Baldwin 2nd and Rich 3rd. The Californian beat the two New Englanders at their home track.
