Default USAC (?) Stock Cars

I have a few photos that I found in an envelope tucked away in one of my photo albums. The only information I have written on the envelope is, "The Arizona Fairgrounds." And were cut from a magazine, but what magazine I don't remember. I did not note anything about USAC on the envelope.

As my memory tends to ebb and flow, I do remember that Jerry Unser was the 1957 USAC Stock Car National Champion; and advertised on the left rear fender of his #92 Ford is NAT'L STOCK CAR CHAMP. So it must be USAC.

So I'll just leave it at 1957. It does look like a dirt track. The quality of the photos is not HD they are scanned and look passable, some have spots on them.

I'll add them one at time.

Photo #1

Jerry Unser, #92, 1957 Ford, Fenton Special.

"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...
