Press On Regardless

First time I heard about Press-on-Regardless Rally was from my friend Phil. I had no idea it was held right here in our backyard! After some digging managed to track down Scott Harvey, Jr. whom his father won the POR in a Sunbeam Arrow consecutively in 1969 & 1970 (and won it again in 1971 in a Plymouth Cricket, and again in 1994 with an Eagle Talon).
Andrew Cowan's win at the 1968 London-Sydney Marathon was the inspiration for Scott to pick the Arrow, he was a Chrysler employee and throughout his amazing racing career he used many other Chrysler vehicles.

I had a pleasure to meet Scott, Jr. whom has won the POR 3 times himself, this past fall for a long chat. His father is retired and now lives in California, but he is still tinkering with cars.

Special Thanks to Jr. for providing the photos and the articles above!
