Erickson Shirley --
1959 Costin Lister-Chevrolet / Greg Meyer -- 1958 Devin SS-Chevrolet
Shirley had little trouble winning Wednesday's
Group 1 final. Meyer finished 2nd.
Shirley's car was driven "back in the
day" by southern California sprint car ace Bob
Edmison. Another west coast Costin Lister was northern
California driver Dave
Ridenour's Jaguar-powered car.
Ridenour sold his Lister to Ted Peterson,
who rolled the car exiting Turn 6 at Riverside during qualifying for the
1962 "L.A. Times Grand Prix" at Riverside (I saw this happen).
Friedman's shot of Peterson before the accident. The car never
raced again in California.
Up in the Pacific Northwest Lew Florence
raced a third Costin Lister. Here's Dave
Friedman's shot of Florence in his Chevy- powered car at the
1962 L.A. Times GP at Riverside on Oct. 14 1962. (Rob
owns and races this car today.) (Funny. I'd forgotten that
drove Walton's Lister at the Monterey "RMMR" last year. No wonder
he was so fast in the red car!)
"Lister Talk" here.
