Default Lakeside photos from George Green collection

Here are some great photos from the George Green collection. Although the bulk of these photos are 1940's shots of Lakeside Speedway midget still and action pictures, their are quite a few Lakeside modified as well as pictures of Colorado Nat'l Speedway dirt late models. George Green piloted the #65 CNS dirt late model from 1961-1965. He then moved on to Lakeside Speedway where he drove the #53 modified owned by the Schaffer Bros. This car was also driven by Jim "Lunchmeat" Moore. Included are pics of Georges drag car which was a early 'T' powered originally by a flat head and later by a 331 Chrysler Hemi. George still attends Nextel Cup races and I was reaquainted with him two years ago while we both attended the Midget Nat'ls in Belleville, Kansas. Thanks for the memories George.

Is that possible? I was thinking CNS was built in 1965.
