I believe the track in this photo is the Eau Claire Speedway in Eau Claire Wisconsin. A track that closed down years ago. I know the year was 1973 and the driver of the #57 car is the late Punky Manor (1953-1979). I can't remember who drove the #87 Nova but I do seem to recall that he was from Eau Claire. No clue on who is in the #14.

I actually remember when this car was raced. He used to run at the Clark County Fairgrounds in Neillsville, Wisconsin on Saturday nights. They closed the track in 1977 because the people in the town complained about all the noise.

Speaking of historic NASCAR pictures, does anyone out there have any photos of Curtis Turner's "Wild Hog" 1955 Ford, (Schwam Motor Company) in which he led the 1955 Southern 500 at Darlington before the front suspension failed, and which was Ford's first Factory NASCAR outing. (Teammates with a twin copy driven by Joe Weatherly, which also failed the suspension) There is a replica of the 1956 Version of the Schwam "Wild Hog" out there, (copy attached) but I would like to see pictures of the real 1955 model, because of its historic significance. I saw a movie clip of the actual 1955 car on U-Tube about the 55 Darlington Southern 500, but the only close up was about 1 second clip of a close up of Curtis sitting behind the wheel, and it only shows s small part of the car and Curtis's smiling face.

There were at least two '56 cars, one of them a #99 hardtop that Turner won the '56 Southern 500 at Darlington while driving. I don't think I've ever seen a picture of the '55 car. The place to look would be the NASCAR archives but it has been years since I was there. I'm not sure that it is open to the public. As a former NASCAR drag racer maybe you might have an "in"?
