    Actually, at this point, the Surfers had sold the car to Richie & Bobby Bandel, from New York City. The Surfers were helping out the first time the Bandel Bros. took the car out to the track. I met the Bandel Bros in NYC one time, in 1965. Interesting guys, I could tell you some stories but I don't know if the Statute of Limitations has expired or not...

    Is there any information on the first attached shot? From the looks of the tires on the cars this must be at a paved track somewhere.

    The other shot looks like Johnny Thomson and Jud Larson at Williams Grove in 1958. Jud won.

    Thanks for posting, Rootie!

    That isn't Williams Grove, maybe Sacramento and I think it is Tony B.

    just a thought.

    Sorry, I have no further info on the #8 sprint.
    FWIW my info says it is Larson and Thomson at WG 1958. I'm pretty sure it's not Sacto as it had a much different outer guard rail.

    I attended the Williams Grove race in question. Larson did not have a handkerchief in his mouth. He sat larger in the car than that pictured. I do not remember the buildings that close to the track. Larson got the Bignotti ride after the WG race, Bettenhausen went to the Zink ride.

    I can be wrong, but Jud was a much large figure.

    Second edit. I am wrong, larson wore a watch which can be seen.
