Lippy, I wondered if Dickie Harrells was one of the rigs performing. He was a bad ass racer, he helped a couple of my friends set up their 62 409's back in the days of the Grand Island, Ne. drag strip days, real cool cat. Thanx for sharing the cool vids S.B. ~sololobo~

I will ask around, my pop's grew up in that area. I looked thru some of the pictures that I scanned a while back & I don't see it. I will look thru some more pix that I have in a shoebox.

Awesome, thanks for sharing. The guy filming did a real decent job.

I'd bet that at least a couple of those cars are collecting dust in a local garage waiting to be found. My hope would be to track down that sweet gold deuce 5/w @ 8:01!

I'm guessing it being (only) 1/8th mile that this was a private service road? I'd imagine it still looks much the same today-farmland?

If those giant silos are still present, you could easily pinpoint the site. Can you google earth image it for us?

Not sure what he was running before his 32 Ford five window coupe but I bet that Don Long was there. Probably Don Baxter too.

That red and white full bodied dragster in the first film sure looks like Kansas City's Bob Sullivan and his Pandemonium.


I'll forward this thread to a guy I know who was in the Topeka car scene back in the late '50s early '60s and see if he recognizes any cars.

Here's some feedback I've gotten:

"...was on the Lower Silver Road, Topeka Ks. We had a dike at the end of the drag strip that had to stop you or it's in the river. The return road was dirt."

My source ran a '32 roadster and a '60 Bonneville at that strip.

More:
"Larry Lowrey Sr. was the driver of the red 57 chevy, the driver of the pickup was Gary Jensen I believe. The 55 Chevy in the other clip was driven by Wayne Kilnor from Manhattan."

I will show this to my dad. He raced out there at this same time period with some guys from his car club. He may recognize some of the cars. He also has some 8mm film from '61 that we would like to get put on dvd if you could tell me where I might get that done. I would share it as well.

I hung out with a guy who raced a B/G Anglia called "Lil Critter" inthe mid to late 60'S. I remember we had to weigh in at the elevator scales and then go across the road to the track.

I felt like I was talking to myself by bumping it back up to the top. The 'vintage' shots are too great to let it slide to page 15.

The Fiat was Push and Cain, the maroon roadster I believe was Pete Peterson and the Blue Crosley was Charlie Flott.

Meant to do this a long time ago. Based on some fuzzy-logic detective work, I think this is where Kaw Valley used to be. The blue ellipse shows the grain silos in the background of the movies, and the red might show where the track was. Pure speculation on my part.


A little bigger view:
