Yellow arrow, Young Dale Earnhart Jr,,,,that's Blind Bob in the back over the 6.... Steve has the sledge hammer, now he identifies as Sally
The cars are newer, but not much else has changed.
32 with model A bumper.
Or maybe it's a Model A with a Model A bumper? Wheel and tire size looks more like an A to me.
Ridgid, Snap-On, and Pirelli Tires had great calendars for years but the PC world has taken over. Now women just wear yoga pants that shows every nook and cranny, but no one is supposed to look. I don't understand.
Ann Margaret had a Trophy, not a Bonneville. Custom electric start.
Good eye! Well played @deucendude.
The windshield along with the body lines give it away as a ‘32.

Could the first attached shot be another URC car? And notice the left rear tire which looks to be a retread. Retreads were pretty common in dirt track racing and many of them were better and had superior tread patterns than new tires by big name companies.
And the last shot is of Johnny White's car at Indianapolis in 1964. He had a great run and finished 4th. And it looks like the Demler team is next door to the Hopkins/Bobby Marshman garage where a pretty neat looking go kart with a Pure Oil Firebird body on it sits outside.
It is, URC racer Hal Wilson at, I believe, Flemington, circa 1965.
Errr, have a look at the cowl and the roof...
