Default Re: USAC (?) Stock Cars

From the few photos I have, here is Les Snow in his #8 1957 Chevrolet, it is in Bel Air or 210 trim rather than the 150 Utility Sedan style. I'm not sure if USAC allowed fuel injection or not. What a great photo from a great time period of stock car racing.

"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...
