Return of The "Pinky Point" Cup

 In 1989 at LeMans the Sauber Mercedes and Porsche 962 Teams were battling for the race win in the 24 Hour Endurance classic just as we emulated in our endurance race.  Also in 1989, yours truly was master of ceremonies at the scale slot racing world championship held in the Grand Raceway in Chicago, IL.  23 countries provided their best drivers for this event with all expenses paid by the event organizers including $50,000 in real CASH money that was distributed in prizes.  One of the very special parts of that race was the awarding of the "Pinky Point Cup" for the driver that amassed the most racing points across all of the events that encompassed the championship.  That cup was won by one of the Italian contingent & the Italians as a group won a complete hotel room full of trophies which they left in the hotel since MUCH to difficult to take back on the airplane .. so as a result I salvaged the special "Pinky Point Cup" which has now been awarded as a "traveling" trophy for our annual Enduro classic.  Here it is above complete with the Champaign.

The inscription :

 The "Bad Dog Racing" team will have this gracing their trophy shelf until next year when it will again be pressed into service to hold the bubbly .... The Champaign & the cup was awarded by our own official trophy girl Ms. Whitney Webber at the end of the evenings festivities.  For more information on the IMCA (International Micro Car Association) that organized & funded the 1989 slot world championships event in Chicago please see their web site :
