Not sure that is Lou, maybe Paul Benezra?

DK had it correct earlier, the Denight with the clown was Chuck Wahl's. It reminded me a lot of Jerry Boyce's Team Circus Circus Toni's from the late 70's/early 80's.
I remember Buckwheat's comeback, it was a classic!

Yes, Buckwheat makes me laugh so hard, on the trailer out to the line everybody is so quiet and Wheat pops up and shows the bottom of his plane where I had put "former NATIONAL champion" across his wing and he says, all you sons of b's better look out cuz I am gonna open a can up now... classic. Then on the line we would have to wait until the last second to start and he would bolt back to stand while I jammed the needle to the mark just so he had enough fuel to maybe finish the heat. By the end of the heat we were laughing so hard I dont know how he flew...
