Re: Racing / Heuer / a champion and his Watch

: Dear sirs;

: I am extremely unhappy about what I found posted here. My father,
: Charles Kemp Kirkbride II, of Chatham Borough New Jersey won the
: Daytona in 1967. I have the 1967 Heuer Camaro Championship. I
: also have the (ugly) statue in the basement. It looks like a
: kindegarden class made it. - which I will take out and take a
: pic of also and sent to you. He was driving #42 McClaren. You
: can ask Dicky Smothers, Skip Barber or many of his other friends
: of that driving era.

: Your information is absolutely incorrect.

Dear Madam,

Sorry you are unhappy but I think you may be jumping to an erroneous conclusion. There were quite a few ARRC races at Daytona during this event. As was stated in the original post, JD Igleheart won the 1967 H-Modified Class ARRC Championship. Your father may indeed have won another class race at Daytona and may have won a similar Heuer Camaro.

We would certainly love to see photos of this watch and we would love to give your father credit.
