Default Re: Englewood Speedway - Denver Colorado

More Englewood memories.....


(J.L. McGuire collection) In 1972 Englewood Speedway ran three nights a week with
their regular weekend race meets on Saturday and Sunday, then every Wednesday
night as well. The Wednesday night meets featured Mini Stocks, Chargers (a real low budget
Super Stock kind of class) and Formula Fords. Ahh, those were the days. 3 big nights of
"The Wildest Show on Wheels"!!!



(J.L. McGuire collection) Nick Weber #88 in a '57 Volvo battles Don Hagen #19
in a '70 Datsun during Wednesday night Mini Stock action.



(J.L. McGuire collection) Formula Fords were fun to watch zip around the oval
on "hump day".



(Darrell Smith collection) Quite a few cars showed up every Wednesday for the
affordable Charger class at Englewood. Here, Darrell Smith #2 puts it to another Charger
during a main event.
