Here are some photos of my father - in - law George Oaks with his number 0 car. Dad raced at Englewood Speedway & Lakeside Speedway in the 1950's - the early 70's if I remember correctly. In the 4th picture that is George Oaks on the left & Bobby Kedderman on the right when looking at photo. In the 5th photos that is a gentleman by the name of "Bill" pictured with George

Carol, thanks for posting those wonderful old photos. I enjoy learning more about the cars that ran at Englewood Speedway. One of those, the Lakeside Enco sponsored car is one from Lakeside that I don't remember and can't find in any of the programs. Scotty (Duncan Photographers) usually dated his photos on the back. Wondered if you have the date of that photo.

parrot the only numbers on the back are 13-7-62. As there are only 12 months in a year I am not quite sure what those numbers mean. Sorry I could not be of more help.
