    Anyone able to "date" this photo? I have a copy of a few pages from the San Jose Speedway Poor Man's 500 program from '52 (given to me by Bob Barkheimer in '75), listing Bud Olson as the driver of a #17 car for that particular event.

    image.jpeg My Father and uncles all raced hard tops (Claimers) at San Jose Speedway in the late 50's and early 60's. After my parants divorced in 1960, my Mom remarried and bought a house on the corner across from the north gate to the race track. I spent many Saturday nights at the track and cheering on my favorite driver, Marshall Sargent. My first job was selling Cracker Jacks and Hersey bars in the stands. Great memories.
