used this as our trivia question back in April of 2005 and many of you recognized
"Jim" from his booming voice as the fellow who sold "ICE CREAM
here - Peanuts", along with other items throughout the stands at Flemington. I
remember how loud his opening "ICE CREAM" was, and how it would
startle those who did not know that Jim had entered the area. Not sure, but I think
Jim got a kick out of it!
I'm happy to report that Jim's son "Johnny" is still going strong, selling ice cream though the stands at New Egypt Speedway.

starting at Old Bridge Speedway. Jim started vending at Ebbits Field. We
worked at most tracks in NJm NY, PA, DE in the 50's, 60's and into the 70's.
Jim is in Darlington SC.

cream." Also, "Give your tongue a sleigh-ride." My personal favorite,
when things were slow selling, "Come on you stingy buggers, get your money out."

|09/10/06||Fred Voorhees||What a booming voice Jim had. He's another of the memories of my early years at Flemington. He was a fixture and really got along well with all fans. In some small way, Jimmie was just another part of the whole Flemington Speedway experience. Hey ice cream here - peanuts!|
