Bechelli Continues Swartz Cheesewedge Restoration Project

Mike Bechelli of M&M Recycling in Elizabethtown Indiana, a long-time supporter of the National Dirt Late Model Hall of Fame continues the restoration of the original 1982 World Dirt Track Championship winning Charlie Swartz “Cheesewedge” car. Bechelli in the past had a huge hand in the restoration of the 1986 Jeff Purvis Rayburn, Russ Petro Rayburn wedge and the 1995 Jack Boggs Mastersbilt that are prominently displayed at the Hall. Thus far Mike has provided a number of important parts and is in the process of assembling it for future display at the Hall.

For Mike’s dedication to our sport the Hall proudly displays his sign on the front of the Hall’s building. ┬áThe Hall also wishes to thank Eldora E-Mod Racer and race mechanic Warren Shingleton for his added assistance in this remarkable project. Warren was initially involved in the assembling of the 2002 raffle Dirt Late Model which raised the funds to build our original building. Our thanks go out to these two fine gentlemen for their continued support.
