    Watermelon speedway Cordele Georgia. Vintage race. I think. Most likely a different driver pictured than the one from the 70s.

    Did you read the scoop on the Woods brothers 16 car. They had the motor moved back where the front seat was for more rear grip hahaaa Driver sat in the back. :D Smokey had nothing on these guys.

    Yup. It's a dangerous game. Moreso back then... but 200+ on water is never safe.

    Kentuckian “Bullet Bob” Reuther set the lasting record on the “Measured Mile” on Daytona Beach in 1957. He was in this tricked-out 1938 Plymouth, fires by a supercharged 1957 Chrysler V-8. It ran a remarkable 150.25 MPH. The car was seriously aerodynamic for its time: moon disks, full windows, all body seams carefully taped over. From BOWLING GREEN STOCK CAR RACING, by Larry Upton and Jonathan Jeffrey. (Russ Thompson Collection)

    sdj Just a race fan

    I guess Bruton wasn't the first (4) Wide Drag racing.

    What track was this photo taken at?
