Comment: Great photo of a the modifieds heading away from the
camera. It's great to see a sedan leading the way as by this time, the
sedans were getting harder and harder to find until by the mid 70's there
were only a handful left.
Just behind Wilbur is Pee Wee Griffin who I don't remember being a regular Saturday night runner at Flemington. I could be wrong on that, but I always just associated Pee Wee with East Windsor. Does anyone know if Pee Wee ran Flemington on a regular basis or could this be from a special mid week or extra distance event?

If that is indeed Tas in the K46, it has to be 1972.

For most of his time up north Pee Wee’s Saturday night track was Orange County in Middletown, NY. Although I was always a big Pee Wee fan, I felt he never adapted to the Flemington “square”. I even recall him running Wall Stadium at least once.
