Allentown Fairgrounds Photos
From photographer Joe Simpkins
Provided by Bobby Pickell Jr.

Here's a few great photos that capture some of the excitement of attending an auto race at the Allentown Fairgrounds in the early 60's.  From what I'm told, all of the photos below are from 1962.

Take your seat under the roof of the main grandstand and enjoy the show...
