Default Re: USAC (?) Stock Cars

From the same few photos, there is a separate note that states, "Unser 81" and "Crawford 82". Might this be Bobby Unser (?) in the 1956 Mercury, and Ray Crawford (?) in the 1957 Chevrolet, which looks like it could have used some rub rails.

"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...
