STUDENT CLUB: In the late 1970s and early 80s, United Tribes automotive students and staff members enlivened their educational training with stock car racing. Seen in this photo from 1980 is the first of several cars that were modified for racing by the United Tribes Stock Car Club. The ‘Tribes’ car and crew were in action Saturday nights at Capital Raceway east of Bismarck. At left, from left, are pit crew members Nick Kills Enemy, Frank Lohnes (now an employee of United Tribes) and Dean Cottier.
