    You got me on this one, Rootie. Looks like a Championship car running with a sprint car but I have no idea where.

    Any info on this one?

    Thanks.

    Actually there both ex- Champ cars, both owned by local racer Gordon Herring that he bought from the Whittingtons late 50s. The #37 is the former Hinkle/McGrath car that he was killed in at Phx. and the #36 is the ex Blakely Oil Schroeder built car. I believe that is Herring in the 37 but I'm not sure who's in the 36. I believe the pic was probably taken at Englewood Speedway, Denver, circa 1960.

    What a tragic end. Someone opened the back gate and swung it into his path while qualifying.
