Default Re: Unidentified Colorado Midget Photos

Concerning this photo, wondering if Jerry Lee or someone has a better or an original one. Photos from that era had a higher resolution which could then be magnified without losing detail. Some additional info that makes me believe that it is 1956 is that Gordon Herring was the CARC President that year, and may have chosen the #1 for that reason, plus it was probably available since his teammate from 1955, Norm Engblom who had been #1 then, wasn't using it. My fortunes increased in 1956 in that Mr. Herring invited me to a preseason hot lap session. (Had to use that info at the gate to get in since the park hadn't opened yet). Unfortunately the #1 wasn't a car that I remember from that visit, nor subsequent visits. Guess it's hard to be president and race too. Meanwhile, I'm willing to agree that the question of what year this is may not be completely settled yet.
