From left to right (behind Connie Kalitta's dragster) are Les Ritchey Performance Associates 289-HP '65 Fairlane, Ed Terry Quarter Horse 289-HP B/FX '65 Mustang, Mike Schmidt '65 Galaxie, Len Richter Bob Ford 427-SOHC B/FX '65 Galaxie, and Gas Ronda Russ Davis Ford 427-SOHC A/FX '65 Mustang.
The photo is from the pits at Pomona and was most likely taken prior to the '65 Winternationals as the Ronda car still has the bright wheels as opposed to the natural magnesium ones that it ran for most of its /FX career

Joe Jill established Speedwin Engineering/Automotive in 1960 in Huappauge LI and was very active on the east coast racing scene for many years. At one point even the NY Times ran a feature on the business;
In the 1990 the business relocated to southern California under the name Superior Automotive and it is still operating in Placentia.
