FARLEE/ BOB BURD/ AND RUSS DODGE FOR PROVIDING THESE GREAT WINDOWS OF THE
PAST. THE CARS AND DRIVERS IN ALL OF COUPE AND SEDAN DAYS IS WHAT ( HOOKED )
ME INTO ( STOCK ??? ) CAR RACING !!!
P.S. I WONDER IF THE INTERNATIONAL SCOUT IN THE LOWER RIGHT OF THE PICTURE EVER BECAME A RACE CAR IN LATER YEARS. I KNOW A LOT OF CAR BUILDERS VALUED THE FRAMES IN THESE VEHICLES.

It looks like you have the 16J of Elton Hildreth on the pole, next to him the white #10 sedan of Otto Harwi, an unknown blue coupe, SSS Ed Farley, 3A of Tommy McAndrews, yellow coach 2A of Billy D, red coach #24 Sonny Strupp, orange coupe ???, Z of Buck Barker, 6Jr. of Ken Wismer, the Deasey #707 of George Sleight, the Jordan #2 of Jackie McLaughlin, red and white coupe #9 Warren Mutter, #44 Tas with the giant SCHMIDT'S Beer DECAL on the side of the car AND on the roof. The last black coupe is the radical set back (for the time) black #45 of Buck Schuster who was a Hatfield regular.|

|07.02.10||Geoff Yoder||Many thanks for the great color picture from the Allentown Fairgrounds. Those afternoon shows were always so special because they drew the best of the best from the whole northeast! Many times when in high school and college myself and my friends would make it a double header going to Nazareth or Harmony for the races later that night if they were Sunday. Sat shows we went to Hatfield or Flemington Even the IMCA sprint shows at the end which were on the cinder track had great fields. .Great times.|

I would of loved to see a race at this track, But it
was before my time. My father saw a bunch here and I still ask him about it.
What is really neat about this photo is that they did have dirt on this
track I always thought it was cinders.
