Another driver who ran regularly in Windsor Ontario with the hot rods, and who was the driver of roadster #22 that I see in some of your pictures was a fellow by the name of Bob Rogers. This Riley conversion roadster was as absolutely as smooth a runner as there was out there on the dirt.

The car identified as # 17 is actually # 77, and was driven by Marion Adams. He was also known as Marion Sczrokas or some spelling close to that.
