Staging lanes at Lions 1959 looking North towards the freeway.
Nice capture of the staging lanes at Lions. By the looks of the cars, it is 1959 or possibly 1960. The stock class lanes were pretty full except for the top high power A/Stock and SS classes.

entrance and car classification in the pits
It was pretty exciting when your friends would all gather at the drags and pop off their hubcaps, and clean out their trunks to make runs in the stock classes, from A/Stock down to E/F stock. Our 58 Impala with a 348/280HP was in the A/Stock class. It was very competitive (vs. supercharged Ford sedans, big Pontiacs, Buicks and a bunch of 58-59 Chevy sedans) and luckily we won several trophies.
