The show went real good other the one of the midjets cought the berm and rolled and one of the coups cought fire. Both drivers were ok and there cars not to bad. The bad thing is this race is not advertized and very few get to see it. Here is a shot of the stands, what a shame. O and the blue white and orange car in the pic started 18th with the supers, Was out front by lape 5 and never looked back. Damn that was fun

Love vintage racing. It's sad to say but I guess I'm vintage. Parents took me to the races since I was 2 years old. That was back in the Reading Fairgrounds days. That track closed when I was in 11th grade. They ran mostly modifieds but I always enjoyed the sprints. I've even got a sprint car tat on my right boob !! Knoxville is cool for racing and the museum is killer. Been to the Knoxville nationals 2x. If anyone else out there is into sprints you gotta go and get to the Eldora speedway. Talk about banked turns. I'm a girl and it makes me hot !

Great pics. Thanks for sharing them. They bring back a lot of memories of the dirt tracks in New York and Pa in the 50s and 60s.

Thanks for the great photos. I wanted to attend but went to "Back to the Fifties" on Friday and had a class reunion today.

The white w/black scallops #92 in the second set of photos belongs to Dave and Dottie Hoska from Shoreview, MN. It was driven in the early 70's by Stan "the Mad Russian" Borofsky and later restored by Dave. The white w/blue trim #19 is a car I raced against in the 70's at Knoxville and North Starr Speedway. It was built by Bob Trostle in Des Moines, owned by Dave Van Patten, and driven by Dick Sutcliffe. I ran this #33 car back then.

Thanks for the pictures. Reminds me of when I was a kid and couldn't afford to get in the races at Topeka's Fair grounds. Used to watch the sprints through the board fence. Nothing quite like the sound of an Offy on dirt.

That old tempest body car ran hard even with all the body armer. He ended up 2nd or 3rd. The blue one in the same pick had 57 cheby 1/4. Its net to see how or what they make some of the mod bodys out of for shure. I wish I had more info on alot of these cars but I got crs. I do know they said that Yellow and red #3 sprint ran Indy. Here is my car
