09/02/03 Craig Ford I was talking to an old timer one night at Williams Grove, about 4 years ago. Apparently, he once promoted an event at the Grove in the early 60,s and was able to acquire three of the days best modifed drivers: Tasnady, Frankie Schnieder and (this driver). He told me it was one of the best races he had ever seen at this speedway. Although none of the three won, they were in the top five for most of the feature thrilling the crowd and surprising the regulars. It must have been something to see. I remember the old timer shaking his head in as he told me this story as excited as if it just happened yesterday!. GREAT PICTURE Thanks Craig Ford
12/04/05 Sam Corrice Sure looks like Jackie McLaughlin, my first racing hero.  Jackie is wearing the same shirt rolled to the elbow as in "Faces" page 2a (car # 69).  I know that Jackie drove sprints in the early 50's, but this is the only photo I have seen.
12/04/05 3Wide It is Jackie Sam, and great observation about the shirt.  We forgot to update this page once the trivia question had finished.  Thanks -
