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

(J.L. McGuire collection) Looks like “Fats” in #35 and the #70 tangle in the corner.

(Eddie Biondi collection) 1956 RMSCRA champ Fred Buttrick #81 nails the side of 1954
RMSCRA champion Roger Miller #60 during Jalopy action from a 1957 Englewood program.
Dick Newton #13 is headed for trouble!

(J.L. McGuire collection) Jalopy action like this probably kept the race fans on their feet
all day long.

(J.L. McGuire collection) Mel Ideker and crew from 1955.

(J.L. McGuire collection) George Oaks #0 tangles with others in turn 4 during 1956 Englewood
action. Al Hunter #31 looks like he got away on the high side of the mess. Englewood State
Bank was probably a good sponsor to have on a Jalopy during that time period!
