Jerry,
These are some great old shots of some of the coolest cars that ever graced a racetrack, and such a historic track as Lakeside is greatly missed by many of us.

Side bar about numbers.

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...

Thomas, The CARC retired the #19 back in the '90's to honor John Pachello and when Bob Land retired from racing the club retired the #99 in his honor.

(CARC Archives) What kid wouldn’t want that Quarter Midget coupe?





(CARC Archives) Bob Robertson, 1963. Which one is Bob? Same B.R. that ran Figure 8’s at Englewood?





(CARC Archives) I think that's Bob McDowell on the far right.





(CARC Archives)





(CARC Archives/Duncan Photographers)





(CARC Archives) I wonder what street this was on?





(CARC Archives)





(CARC Archives)





(CARC Archives) Cool pic of the Modifieds all packed into the Lakeside pits.





(CARC Archives)





(CARC Archives) Lloyd and Larry McLaughlin. ARM’s own COUPE RACER!





(CARC Archives) Someone once told me that the guy on the left was RMMRA Midget historian
Gary Martelon as a pitman. My question is…..did their driver really climb in and out of that
little hole on top of the car?
the street the 63 is on is 32nd and umatilla just off Vallejo st where some great engines were built at custom grinders by Ed Smith in the flathead and in line 6 cylinder days, I got to learn a lot from Mr smith, and also drank a lot of coffee with him there at the corner cafe, look at my number 63, and the one with starks and crew? one and the same? I had this picture of the 63 but lost it somewhere along the line with too many others. Harold Schafer

Don Judish's car always a favorite of mine back when so many were going to thirty twos and 'A' bodid cars. Reminds me of yet another coupe carrying that number (dating myself here) and that was the red and cream '34 coupe of Floyd Ruth when he changed his number from 68 to 69 during the mid fifties. He usually put it in the fast A at Lakeside. Like to find a photo of that one.

By the way, I have the gas tank out of #35 and a mag wheel and slick from the #14 car.

Jack Burch. Long before he lost his life at Englewood Speedway he had the misfortune of losing part of a foot due to a clutch explosion. This led CARC to require scatter shields.

This photo was misidentified some time in the '70's or '80's. This photo is actually of #56 Dave Snell and #52 Rex Snell. This photo ran in the Lakeside program July 16, 1961.
Larry McLaughlin didn't have a brother named Lloyd. His dad was Lyle and His brother was Leon or Fuzz as he was known in his racing days. Larry, Fuzzy, and Lyle all raced at Lakeside. Larry's son Greg followed his dad and grandad and races modifies himself

#28
This photo is of Ron Dike and his pit crew. I believe is from '75 or '76
The no.57 car of Joe Ellis was as stated previously owned by larry Balderston and was sponsored by Zip food stores, they were like the 7-11" stores of the day. Joe also ran a late model at Englewood for a year or so. If my memory serves me right seeing how i was on his crew for awhile the car was a bright orange 57 ford numbered 113. Also that is Gary Martelon in the picture with car 28.
