Thumbs up Video of Midgets at Lakeside in the 50's

This is my all-time favorite Rick Wasilko video. He had uploaded it to my other website (sofast.tv). It's an amazing clip of the midgets at Lakeside back in the day. Ricks comment on the video was... "Check out the track conditions in turn 4 in this clip. Looks like an oil slick. "

Love that clip also, just too hard to tell who's who, and what year it may have been for sure, still a great video clip.
