“Rocket” Ron Ewerth leads Donnie Rowe in a WERA B Production race at Talladega Grand Prix Raceway in August of 1986. Ewerth was able to hold off Rowe at the checkered flag in this one. Ewerth was smokin’ hot in 1986. He ended up winning three WERA National Championships at the GNF that year. Rowe was a first-year expert in ’86. He was coming off winning a CCS Novice National title in ’85 and carried that speed over into the expert ranks. Ewerth and Rowe were just two of the stars that made WERA’s Southeast Region an amazing hotbed of talent in the late 1980s.
