“Ole 23” the worked-over Marion hot rod owned and operated by Wayne Graybeal and Bob Konarik has been doing well for herself lately. She and driver Wayne Graybeal took second place in the trophy dash over the weekend at Junction City and went on to win the feature event in the evening.
They plan to return to race in Junction City this Saturday. There also will be a women’s race that evening. Either Margie Graybeal or Mary Konarik will pilot the racing car.
