    Most definitely not. It's in Tegler's book, which only goes up to 83. Unfortunately there is nothing online about Reno 78 and the accident with Jerry Duty's Datsun and I'm at work, can't get to the book. Maybe 78 wasn't Hoover? It wass a 51.

    You guys talking about Hoover's modification to Scott Hammack's truck ? Certainly not '78. I know Scott was a little 'upset' about it...

    It's two different incidents then. Hammack and then in 78 Jerry Duty's brand new sliced up Datsun.

    I'm referring to Hoovers incident with the jet car support truck. Watched the whole thing unfold. I was so convinced it wasn't really happening that I didn't put the camcorder to my eye. Still kicking myself for that one.

    I was out there today but missed the accident. I did hear later that 2 trucks were involved the Jetman truck and the roving fire truck Rover 2. I heard this from 2 sources but I do not know if it is true.
