It's quite likely that Hal Crocker, a photographer in the Atlanta area (Marietta, GA), shot some or most of these races. He's probably your best starting point.

Look on Facebook for "HalCrockerPhoto."

Can you post a picture of the car. I have hundreds of 914 pics and I probably have one your looking for.

Here is a picture of the car in 1973 when Pete drove it and in 1975 when he drove it.

Someone in his SCCA region probably saved the region newsletters, which would have results. (SCCA's magazine, Sports Car, usually covered only national races.) Google whatever region it is and see who the current officials are, then contact them about old newsletters.
