Here are a few from U.S.30 from the 60's, Denny my other dad.

This was a big deal for this race he got to run the Rat Trap, It started great and went downhill pretty quick.



Fantastic burnout



There was a photographer on both sides of the track.



He nailed him out of the hole, back on the bars hard, unloaded the tires, went up in smoke and headed south. he stayed in it until he knew he was gonna go into the grass across the other side of the track.

This is U.S. 30 as it sat a couple years ago. These were taken by a local distant friend, his name is Bob Carlson. He is a cousin of a crew member my dad ran with back in the day. We met on a blog as I searched while looking for hidden pics of my dads Sour Grapes cars. His cousin, my dads crew member, Joe Leaman, lost all his photos of the Sour Grapes in a fire and I hooked him up of coarse, along with Bob. He was kind enough to give me these pictures.

Joe Leamans dad owned a machinw shop in Lafayette Indiana, that is where the Sour Grapes willys was built. They would show up after the shop closed and stay there all night building the car. Ive got pictures of the entire building process, out with the day crew in with the play crew, thats what they use to say going in at night.
