Number 80 is the Mustang owned by the Two RV Gypsies' daughter and son-in-law. This was an evening that allowed drivers to have a passenger, so John Smythers took Karen Duquette in his mustang on the racetrack. After all, Karen had her racetrack winners flag pants on.

Below: While in high School, Karen drove a 1/2 midget at several racetracks in California. Her oldest brother, Evie John was her coach. Her family did not come to watch her race, and not many photographs were taken of her racing (or growing up either), but Karen is thankful for a few. Her brother also drove the same race car in the adult division on the same dates.
