Default Re: ENGLEWOOD SPEEDWAY 50s Jalopy Action

Here is a mid-50's post action photo at Englewood of Harry Lofgren, #18. Check out that rear window.

Main event win? The Trophy on top of #18 must be a travel trophy, and Harry and the trophy girl are holding the individual winner trophy.

"Stay tuned for the greatest spectacle in racing" ~ Sid Collins

LAKESIDE - Late at night by the old Lakeside Speedway, you can hear the ghosts - The barking, crackling "Flathead Fords", the zinging "Chevy Stove Bolt's", The rumbling of the "KK-Offy's", and the snarling "Ford V8-60's". Listen and faintly hear the announcer say, "Ladies and gentlemen, the line up for the trophy dash," and the place would erupt with the mix echoes of cheers and boo's...Remember...
