Wow hard to believe some of those guys even survived.
No roll bars or cages, no seat belts, no helments, no scatter shields and no telling what!
At least those guys could jump out if they had to.
Neat video Will, I enjoyed it those guys were very brave or maybe very stupid. Will, did you ever go to the old Watertown speedway, back in the 60s ? I spent many a Saturday night there. We broke a number of Ford Flathead V-8 engines.
William, In the 60's I wasn't very old, Been to Evans Mills, Can Am and Brockville manys times.
Sorry Will I had you pegged to be about my age, born in 1940 I was in my 20s in the 60s. Was a crew man at Watertown Fairgrounds speedway and Evans MIlls for Keith and Wayne Fuller. They are my wife's cousins. Wayne's son Tim Fuller still races in the DIRT Modified cars.
Anyone else notice most of the early cars were RHD? Then with the boattails LHD was seen more.
I think a few of those people did not survive that day! Oh, I do so wish I could drive some of those cars on races such as those, hear the sounds, the feel, the smells.
Must go find my happy place.
Brings back good memories
