Grantz was considered one of the best drivers in the United Race Drivers Club.

Moe Farmer, No. 120 from Beverly, started out in the Class B Division winning several races and features. Farmer then went to the Class A Division and teamed up with Bob Bouchard from Salem, Mass.

Farmer went on to win many races in Bouchard’s No. 297 super modified at the Pines and Hudson speedways.

George “Choppy” Baldwin in the “Double L” from Lowell followed in the footsteps of his two brothers who raced in Connecticut.

At the age of 14, Baldwin started racing and later had multiple feature wins throughout New England including the URDC Class B championship in 1957. Baldwin was a popular driver in the Pines Bomber division.
