Danny Graves, in the NASCAR Record Book, his real name was Frank Danley.
Possibly from a state that didn't have front plates (Kentucky, etc.)
That's what I was thinking too .......
From Ilion, NY High School, 1962 (printed across two pages):
This car is powered by a M/T HEMI Pontiac engine ( not a Chrysler ). It put away everyone at Indy in '62 taking overall top eliminator. This looks like Pomona, guessing '63 right about the time of the GM racing ban.

A great shot of Jim Hurtubise in the Wilke midget at Milwaukee in 1961. That was back when the they ran midgets one day and Championship cars the next during the Wisconsin State Fair.
Even ran Sprints too Indyrjc
Is that a water bag hanging from the mirror of the 55 Ford Wagon? I seem to remember being in the deserts of the Southwestern US when I was a child and seeing cars with water bags that looked similar to that hanging in front of the grill. It seems like I remember being told it had something to do with keeping the engine cooler.
My dad hung 2 of them on our 56 going cross country in the summer way to the outside by the parking lights. The air going by them as they sweat went into the air ducts and cooled the car like air conditioning. Worked best in Az. with low humidity.
No,,,, they kept wine or tequila in those bags
M & H mr Rifkin. A great supporter of NEMA midgets also. Always
in the pits. He might sell you a “tough” tire or a “not so tough” tire.
A neat guy.
