The Location is Reading Fairgrounds.

11.23.14 3-Wide I originally thought this was the Weld "Sidewinder" but have since learned that the red, white and blue #91 that Kenny drove himself was called the Sidewinder (thanks for the correct info guys.)

That being said, this car had the engine located to the left of the car and I'm told at one time had a Hemi in it.

Looks to be Syracuse to me....low profile tires and the guardrail above the concrete wall sure makes it look that way.

11.24.14 3-Wide Does anyone know if this car was purchased directly from Weld or was there a few variations of it before it became this unique looking yellow racer with what I always think of as kind of a Harley #1.
11.24.14 Chad Culver Joe, I was reading your question about the #1 Weld car. I have seen a photo of the car when Kenny drove it. It looked like it was plain white with a 91 on the rear quarter. I don't know where the photo was. I think it was in a old AARN yearbook. The style and set up looked the same. The car did have a Hemi at on time.  Thanks, Chad

This picture looks like itís from Reading, not Syracuse. Syracuse had a multi-rail guardrail above the wall, not a single rail. Plus that old fence behind the rail, is the same as Readingís old homestretch wall. Judging by the angle in this photo, Iíd say it was shot from the infield building on the Reading front stretch.
