11/26/03 Kevin B Great photo, notice the to-cool gremlin on the other side of the fence! 
11/28/03 Jeff McClung This is a real nice picture, thats Chalie Shire at the front, I think the 43 is Les Alberti, thats Wayne Reutimann in the M1 on the outside, Buzzie on the inside. The next row is Carl Van Horn and Tommy Corellis on the outside, I am pretty sure thats Danny Mitchell in the blue gremlin. Next in line is Kenny Coon on the inside in the 302 with Chris Barger on the outside in the 5a Richie Smith in the triple nickel is next. The only other car I can recognize is the 24 of Ed Delmolino.
12/12/03 Spicolli44 This is by and far my favorite photo on 3-wides,  As a Valley boy,  it's great to see 3 Valley guys there, T.C., Kenny Coon, which I forgot about this paint job, and Eddie Delmolino.  This really takes me back, Not to sure what became of Kenny Coon, he came into the Valley in the early 70's and took the place by storm, punting T.C. out of the L.V. crown he so dominated through the 70's, then just as fast disappeared after a couple of horrendous flips (one ironically at Eastern States).  The 43 car is Bill Brooking who was a Fonda regular but ran good at the Valley too!
12/12/04 Herb Hoskins Well if that is Wayne Reutimann in the M1 then the year would have to be 75, but I think Buzzie was still running a coupe body.   I think 78 is the right year so the driver for the M1 would have been Kevin Collins.
07/17/06 Jason WOW I love ocfs and this is a great shot. it brings me back to the days when my grandfather, Uncle Bill, my Dad and my now pasted on Uncle Mickey along with all the family including my great Grandmother who use to drink beers under the trees out behind the drive in. I love this Track and its good to see a picture of ocfs on such a Flemington dominated site. Jason c/o fastrak motorsports
07/18/06 3Wide This photo was taken by Paul Irving who is a true artist who shot photos at a variety of tracks, but was known for finding those special spots to catch that really unique photo.  This is a great example.

we were running out of gas with 5 to go thatís how Collins caught us. Took the checkers and ran out of gas.  we pushed him to victory  lane.  The 43 was Bill Brooking. in a Walt Schwinning car.  The same car we ran.   Thanks Pete Lazzaro.
