Happy 4th of July to all !!!!! I remember Lakeside Speedway would run special programs for major holidays, normally somewhat of a double header with the stock cars and midgets both in the same evening. (Not the same races)...That was always special to me as it was a big show.

Hope everyone has a cold one and enjoys your family events...

I remember those dual shows on holidays also. It's what made me appreciate midgets. Those were the days! Here's a couple of Lakeside Speedway ads that tout those "Little 500" events. Couldn't find one for July 4th with the midgets, but have one for Memorial Day. Never tried to add it up, but wonder if total laps actually came out to 500! Both of these are from 1962.
