Turkey Derby - Day One
Wall Stadium

Lowrider.  Marty Van Drutan had the former Gil Hearne ride back in tip top shape after Hurricane Sandy had other plans...

Every racecar has a story... We found this on the back of the Barker Racing #6.

El Herbert's cool Vega

Original Bobby Malzahn car... Almost track ready.

Good turnout of vintage cars thanks to the Garden State Vintage Stock Car Club (GSVSCC).

Former Dorney Park car - If you're a Dorney Park guy and want a great vintage project, this one is available...

It's all there....  Give Ed a call at 732-679-O725 and he'll give you the details...

Some may not know it but Frankie Schneider won the first feature ever held at Wall Stadium.   He will be the Grand Marshall for Saturday's Turkey Derby event.

Too cool.  (The weather and the #1!)

Inside the GSVSCC Museum located behind the 1st turn - Plenty to look at and plenty of heat!

A little later in the morning, folks start to make their way around...

Great looking Pinto bodied racer.

Great to see Sam of "Sam's Racing Stuff" on the job.


Tommy Baldwin Racing (TBR) was in the house with the family #7NY

Somehow the turkey made it through another Thanksgiving without an invite to dinner...

Anthony Sessely, who has been doing it the dirt behind the wheel of his TSRSS 305 Sprinter most of this year, was right back in top form on the asphalt.

Wonder if there was a Black Friday special?

Ready to roll out

Watch it run and then buy it!

Still showing some of the leftover snow/salt from the trip down from NY, Bob Ripley Jr. was all smiles after turning laps at Wall in the Bodine #99.

Ryan Flores and other sportsman drivers are ready to answer the call for their feature event.

Jason Caruso in the #36

I heard there were close to 40 Legend cars on hand... Some made the trip all the way down from New England.

Talk about a racing resume at all levels, that's Charlie Langenstein working on his son's #7 Legend car.

Good young racer and somebody to really keep your eye on, Austin Langenstein tries to keep warm like the rest of us prior to the start of the Legend feature.

An early "360" in the Legend B Main, wasn't enough to keep Steve Smith from transferring to the main.  (Thank you for keeping it lit Steve!)

"Hey".... It's Uncle Sy hangin' on to the roll bar...

Diving into your work....

Pit stands are pretty packed as the Sportsman Feature hits the track.

Good crowd on hand considering it didn't get out of the 30's all day...

Spotters take their place

...as does videographer John Filimon

It's time to go racing...
