Pics from everywhere

Edited by Warren from RFTP:

This is a great video for my part of the country. I almost remember it like yesterday as I'm getting older by the day. The 1st car is from TX of course and the rest In this video up to about 1:33 is all from Great Bend, Hutchinson and Salina, KS. Tracks were Golden Belt Speedway in Great Bend, Mohawk/Salthawk Speedway in Hutchinson, The Kansas State Fairgrounds in Hutchinson and Salina Speedway in Salina, KS.

Cars I actually remembered were Mel Potts #0 Alan Combs #55 & 55jr, 21 Marvin McNett, #32-2 Butch Brack, #22Max Sloan, #30 Possible Marvin Bradford(?), #39 Tom Drewell (?), 77 Jack Petty, 48 Sammy Brittendal, #23 Sam Cell, 88 Dennis Narron, #70 (?), 59 is taken at Great Bend I question the driver but could be Shelby Steenson and owned by maybe Homer Ruth of Soloman?, 01 is at Great Bend also (might be Bob Gilmore(?), #29 is at Salina (?), 713 at Salina (?), 3.2% was a Great Bend car. I could drag out the boxes of programs but I will let the viewers chime in. I know your out there. I know its not supers but they were a big part of my racing memories.

Also love the Orange Blossom Special song to go with them. Reminded me of Willie Wheel Chair of KFDI radio in the 70's. He use to play the song when talking about racing at 81 Speedway. He was a real DJ ambassador for racing in the 70's.

I know your all out there lurking about so chime in on these days. Friday nights Salina Speedway, Saturday nights Hutchinson, Dodge City, possibly Wichita or even a trip to Enid. and Sunday Great Bend.

Great stuff!

With a few others that were not on the You Tube video like Henry & son Jimmy Ellington and Curt Battershell and bunch more.

The video of 1962 Hutch Nationals is great! I was only 8 years old but of course some stand out. #73 Bob Peck. There was something in my memory about #73 Bob Peck and #74 Don Hart, not sure what it is. I believe they were team cars? #15 has to be Wild Bill Nelson in what I remember as the Golden Cue Special.

part 2 of '61 Hutch



When viewing the Hutch Nationals remember they ran time trails. Anything before 1963 used the quailifing spot as there number for the races. So the numbers on the 62 videos are not the number they were known for back then. The fastest qualifier ran #1 and so on.

I don't have the races details written in stone, so you guys need to help me get this stuff straight.

 

thank you.

This is obviously later, the cages are more tied in. I'm thinking 1963?

The part 3 video is of 62. If you notice Angel's Construction car driver Gene Angel is #15 (76) in the video and Wild Bill Nelson is #14 (15). That is where they qualified in 62. 14th and 15th. Nelson is not listed in the 63 Nationals. Charlie Lutkie is the winner of the 62 nationals and that is him in victory lane. Bill Nelson was the winner of the trophy dash in earlier segments.

Also Nelson's car had brackets for the wing they ran when they ran against the super sprints. I have seen photos with the wing on the car at 81 Speedway.

If the photographer wasn't so interested in the trophy girls breast (LOL) we might know who the winner was in the video. I'm guessing it was 61 or 60. 61 would have been Harold Leep and 60 would have Forrest Coleman. Leep's nickname was "Skinny Boy" Leep back then. I don't know if the winner fits that description of Leep standing next to the trophy girl.

Part 1 video: I believe the pace car gives this year away. Remember as far back as I can remember Davis-Child's Chevrolet furnished the pace car. I'm pretty sure they would have furnished a new Chevy and this looks to be a 61 Chevy?

I'm betting that is 1961, definitely not a '60 chevy. My Uncle has several.

I'm 56 years old. I have hours watching and watching again and again. These videos of Hutchinson are the greatest stuff I have seen. I'm seeing cars and numbers that I used to call the races at my little dirt track in the yard at 8 years old. I even had these numbers you see in these videos painted on with fingernail paint. Mohawk Speedway and the fairgrounds was like going to Yankee Stadium to a 8 year old in Hutchinson, KS. So many of them are coming back to me watching these videos. Thanks to everyone who allowed these to made public. Especially Dewane and Brian

Where are the rest of them from all the years. How many cameras and movie cameras do you remember back in the day. Where did they go?
