I found this Fred Smith photo tonight in my stuff. No year listed. Looks like Shangri-La. L-R is Dutch, Don Turner, Ray Turner, one of the Ehmann brothers. That's the big-block Troyer Pinto (it actually had a 'Mercury Bobcat' tag on the trunk to make it different - my dad was a parts man at a Lincoln-Mercury dealership!)

kt - we went the prior week to Brewerton (1st time wince the 60's when it was asphalt). I agree with your findings - great racing, lots of competitive cars, decent & fairly-priced concessions, nice lap counter, an announcer you can hear & understand. Even saw Rick Zacharias - his son Dylan runs a Sportsman. But the dust was a killer. I guess over the years I have become spoiled by the central PA tracks (Williams Grove, Selinsgrove, Lincoln, etc.). They know how to do it right with the track composition & preparation that usually remains tacks throughout the night.

Not a fan of 'dry slick' tracks, but love watching the action at most dirt tracks.

I saw an ad on TV for the Fair, saying to get your tickets for the 'last' concerts that involve the grandstands.

RIP Pete Hayes. Thanks for all the memories with those sharp yellow #17 Modifieds!

I could be wrong, but I think the 'original' oval was 1/2 mile & when they expanded the frontstretch out to the dragstrip it may be measured as 5/8 mile??

Dom Kreitz Sr also had a nice Valiant at Reading. I think one of the advantages of the Valiant like Bodine's was that it was a wide flat surface, creating a wing effect with the rake he used on the body. Kenny Brightbill came to Fulton on the dirt once with a Cadillac body that was pretty much pure aerodynamics. Someone also mentioned a Henry J - I remember a car that came to Spencer once in a while (Bob Burton??) - I think it was a regular at Shangri-La.

Tom - now that I 'blew up' the #55 photo, that does look like Sonny Barron!

Nice photos bigfeet! I think the #513 is Fireball Roberts, and the sharp #14 is Milt Johnson (B&M speed shop, father of Danny & Alan).

Nice video - brings back some memories! For the unnumbered with Mod, maybe Neil Truesdell? The #7 Late Model - not sure - there used to be a Rod Norton with a car that looked something like that. Good stuff.
