Rubbin’ Is Racing

One of the absolute coolest things about running this joint is some of the emails I get. From top secret projects in the works to vintage imagery of the past, I get some pretty incredible stuff popping up in the ole Jalopy Journal inbox. Last week, I got an email from one Jim Bays Sr. that I’ve just got to share. Imagine it’s 1954 and you’ve got a little boy with speed in his blood. Thankfully, there’s an outlet… Little Gilmore in Paramount, CA is setup perfectly for the junior style of dirt track racing. Build a car, strap the little shit in, and go RACING!

“She broke my car!”
