Default Re: Devils Motor Club

[B]SUNDAY OCTOBER 14TH, 1951, 61 YEARS AGO![B] Late in this 1951 season, they were still racing, although this would be the last Sunday. Not every racing group raced this late into Fall, but during these start up years the Devils Motro Club was still at it. It had even snowed one Sunday, but on this day, the track looks pretty dry. Below are a few photos from that date.

Can't tell who that is on his side in photo #1, but from the looks of the left front wheel of #2, must have tangled with the it in the process. Mo Gordon's wrecker is on the scene.

Several cars got on their lid during that last race of the season including #48 in photo #2. Curly Dogget won the trophy dash earlier that day, then got his #5 upside down later on shown going over in photo #3. He'd debut a new car for 1952.

Photo 4 shows Mo Gordon with his older GMC tow truck in front of his wrecking yard. The #3 behind the fence was through for the season. As kids we would go down to the lower yard behind this one and crawl through the wrecked stock cars just to see what it felt like sitting in the drivers seat.

The final photo is another action shot. This time it's #88 tearing up his car. Lasted the whole season until this Sunday! Guess that was enough for him, for there was no #88 the next season.
