    I was to young to understand the different brands. This is the only picture I have of the truck. Only remember it being red. Like my grandfathers crawler, I always thought it was a Caterpillar, but a friend pointed out it was an Oliver. What makes you think it may be a REO???

    My dad took me to the hardtop races in Stockton at The 99 Speedway as early as 1956 (I was about 9). The names I remember most are your uncle Joe Giusti and Johnny Brazil. I took my daughter to a few races at The 99 Speedway in the 90's and heard the name Johnny Brazil...maybe he was related to the original Johnny Brazil.
    And you were right about you uncle being a crowd favorite. How else would I remember the name after 60 + years?

    Ohno, Lew, and Gonzales. Starting line action…In these early days, the chain link fence was the only thing separating the spectator to the race car.

    Ohno, Lew, Gonzales A/Modified Roadster VS. the early version of the Ratican, Jackson, Stearns A/Altered. (112" model)

    Hey Gary,

    The photo from January 1960 is the rootbeer color, Ohno, Lew, and Gonzales altered roadster. It was a local Lions Dragstrip favorite. There was a lot of competition in the modified roadster class, but this rootbeer color roadster usually came out on top.

    Here they are in a race against the A/Altered (the early long wheelbase version) of the Ratican Jackson, Stearns Fiat team. These inter-class races were historic as it was the top A/Altered class winner vs the top A/MR winner. Watching and filming two different race cars and teams going against each other was memorable.

    Speaking of the spectators standing so close to the starting line at Lions...there were "blast boards" or whatever they were called back then. Safety starting line "blast boards" at Lions? What was that lanky teenager doing not staying behind those blast shields? Teenagers…”What me worry?”

    Normally I don't bother with Historic Images photos because of the big watermark, but maybe someone knows more about the story behind these shots of cars getting stuck in the mud at an "Autocross"?

    Car # 102 is a '58-'62 NSU Prinz body stuck on some larger American V-8 chassis. Over to the experts!

  26. Britlings, Memphis and Pancho's in West Memphis, good memories! Lots of early sixties trips to the big city,
    to Goldsmith's toy department for wind-up race cars, model planes and jetex jet engines, then lunch and a movie. I'm 71 today and it seems like it was yesterday.
