I see the #24 Jerry Stone drove from Tulsa in 79. The pole could be the 1n, looks like a Nance logo? The #4 isn't the Don Mack sprinter from ND.
I believe at one of the Tulsa WoO shows an Ohio driver was in the 1n. Fred Linder or someone of his caliber comes to mind?
I don't remember who drove Nance car but I think that Charlie Swartz drove the Loretta Lynn car which became the Kenny Rogers Gambler team later. The Tulsa paper article about one of the cars and the wing, it was the first car to have the side panels staggered for the corners. The 79 race was a two day show and Johnny Anderson won the first night and Steve Kinser spent the night in the burn centre.The 1977 race was a Saturday night race with the features on Sunday Afternoon and it was very dry and dusty. Rick Ferkel won the 77 feature. I Saw Frankie Lies at Ferkels's car after the race and he looking at the right Rear tire and writing the number down. In 81 Little Al Unser was driving the Stanton car and it was not handling very good at all. Ge was pulling a wheelie in the turns and it wanted to push off the track. That was Little Al's last time in a sprint car Steve Kinser drove the Stanton car the next night in KC and Al went sports car and Indy car racing.
