The York pictures are great. I'm trying to collect pictures of tracks in their final years... not many out there like that. The famous west coast tracks like Fontana, Half Moon Bay, Riverside, Colton , Saugus, San Fernando all ran years later than any of the pictures I've found. Lions and OCIR have tons of pictures of their very last races.
Saugus ran till 1960 with almost every picture being before 55.
That's a good idea, never occurred to me!

I was at York the last day they were open, we had no idea it was going to be the last day. We left saying "see you next year" then heard the bad news over the winter. I still miss that track.

I have other photos from there, been meaning to dig them up.

Got ahold of a couple more pics of my dad's old FED!!!!!!!!
The "PA" that's painted on it is for "Performance Associates", the speed shop he owned in Pueblo, CO for years and years and years!!
