Default ENGLEWOOD SPEEDWAY – ‘50’s Jalopy Action

Let’s go back to the day when a dollar gave you a whole evening of this kind of entertainment……..

(J.L. McGuire collection) Blackie Blackard #46 piles head-on into the action during ‘50’s Jalopy
races at Englewood Speedway.

(J.L. McGuire collection) Jalopies head in every direction during this pile up on the East end
of Englewood. A free bottle of orange Ne-Hi to anyone who can identify these drivers! I know
Walter Avants owned the #25.

(J.L. McGuire collection) Don Dolezal #46, Roger Pierce #30, and Harold Harcrow #32 are
about to have some real fun in the Englewood backchute. Note the absence of a catch
fence along the edge of the track back there!

(J.L. McGuire collection) #25 and #101 take the inside to avoid the #15 flying end-over-end
during Jalopy action at Englewood Speedway in the ‘50’s. If you look close at the #15, it
looks as though the driver is holding on to the steering column for dear life while flying
backwards through that opening side door!
