Reading Fairgrounds Racing
"Legends of the Fairgrounds"
Here's page 1 of our photo recap from our Aug 8th visit!
Bright and shiny, the #3 once driven by John Blakely just in front of the Weld Walt Olsen's #91
...not as bright and shiny, but the sheet metal still stirs the memories!
As original as it gets.
Still has that built in lean to the left...
...Center steer NOT! We can still picture Kenny at the wheel of this one!
They removed the red Tony Hirshman paint and found Freddy Brightbill's yellow #13 underneath...
Beautiful Weikert's Livestock Sprint driven by Paul Pitzer and Kenny Weld
The shirt that will always be in fashion... an original Deasey #707 Crew Shirt
Gathering of some of Reading's Favorites! (Bob Braxton, Freddy Adam, Leigh Earnshaw, Glenn Fitzcharles, Earl Derr, Red Coffin, Jim Keppley, Ed Farley, Frankie Schneider.. just to name a few. We also saw Ronnie Guinther, Archie Myers, Gary Galob, Kenny Brightbill and Blane Saddler while at the show.

1/5th mile dirt track is readied for Kart and Slingshot action.. They're racing again in Reading!
A packed house, as many found their seats early prior to the start of the evenings events.
Slow?....Maybe in the pits, but not on the track!
With the Fair, the RSCA Trailer, and the stands filled to capacity as a backdrop, the karts took to the track.
The karts looked great on the 1/5th mile... A late race restart was all the yellow #19 needed...
See what we mean? Congratulations to the winner
