Good Ol` Vinnie....I had lunch aboard his house boat many years ago.
The first photo is Stan Bowman at Eldora in 1962 I believe. He won the race and made a name for himself immediately.
I believe the next shot is also Eldora in 1968 with Gary Bettenhausen's Willie Davis sprint car in the foreground. Looking down the row of cars you can also see Greg Weld's caged roadster which always seemed to work better on dirt than on pavement.
And the final shot shows Bob Scott at Langhorne in the Ray Brady car in 1954. He was killed in this car a few weeks later at Darlington.
Dempsey Wilson in the roadster?
