Got a pic from a local fellow here- three Model T racers it looks like. The date may be a little early though?? Can anyone identify the speedster bodies? Obviously the first one on the brass car is homemade.

Times have changed. Farmers used to wear a tie when working in the fields. A full suit was normal attire. It was very common to dress that way while racing on a dirt track. It was also common to wear coveralls over the suit and tie. And this is the after-race photo. They may have taken the coveralls off.
Really great photo. Thanks.
Drive safe, W2

Looks like the whole town turned out for the race!!
Just kidding they had a population of around 7000 in those days.
Now grown into a small city of 35000 or so.

Would love to know more about these,
Canadian cars 1917, the one in the middle looks like the one I have,right down to the tire rack, and my great Uncle always claimed it was a 1917
so if anyone figures out who made the body on the middle car....I'm dying to know...
