Default Re: ENGLEWOOD SPEEDWAY – ‘50’s Jalopy Action


(J.L. McGuire collection) Bobby Kelly #4 followed by Sam Langley #1 miss a rolling Jalopy in
this grainy old photo from Englewood Speedway. Looks like a packed house enjoying these
races from 1951.




(J.L. McGuire collection) Len Winters #70 Jalopy looks like it’s just been dropped from an
airplane in this 1951 action shot from Englewood.




(J.L. McGuire collection) More early ‘50’s Jalopy action at Englewood. Note the “rumble seat”
popping open on Art Fry’s #40 in the background.





(J.L. McGuire collection) #101 lands rubber-side-up during ‘50’s Englewood action. Can’t quite
make out the driver’s name on the door, but ‘Red Rocks Auditorium’ seems like a pretty hefty
sponsor for a Jalopy!





(J.L. McGuire collection) A barrel-roll through the back stretch was a typical scene at
Englewood during the ‘50’s.


More to come…….
