Flagger Johnny Favinger, in the photo also, was a former open wheel driver from the late 30's and 40's. At the time Bob Sweeten sold photos from the trunk of his car in the infield. ($.50 @ or mis-prints) $.25) Had I known then! but then again it cost $1.00 spectator admission to the infield!|

This is a great picture. Carl must have been about 24-25 at the time. I have been a CVH fan since I started going to the races. My parents went to school with Carl, so he was the home town boy we always rooted for. My knowledge of the cars Carl drove from before I started going to the races regularly has been broadened by this the site!
