One of the photos sent to us over the Christmas holiday as noted in this weeks opening comments, this is an absolute beauty!
Seated inside the #716 of famed Waterford Speedbowl car-owner Freddie Beaber is the late Jerry Glaude.
Starting out this week, we have a nice 70s-era image from Massachusetts Seekonk Speedway.
Seen here posing on the infield of the celebrated New England oval also known as The Cement Palace is longtime competitor Johnny Tripp.
Also included in his accomplishments is the 1962 United Stock Car Racing Club Grand Championship, a feat he recorded by winning at the many UNITED-sanctioned tracks that once dotted Northeast.
Contained in a parcel of photos we received as a Christmas present last month, we really like this image.Starting this weeks edition of RTT we have a great early victory lane image of one of the Waterford Speedbowls most fondly-remembered combinations; Newt Palm & Stan Majewskis L&M modified.He was twice a champion (1967 & 68), while wheeling the potent little Willys-bodied coupe.He was known primarily for his many accomplishments at the Speedbowl where he amassed a career-total of 73 feature victories in both Non-Ford and Modified competition, and was a champion in both classes (3 Non-Ford titles, and 1 Modified crown).He shocked the local racing community with his decision to retire at the dawn of the 1970s whiles still very-much in his prime.First on the slate this week is an early-60s image from what was then officially-known as the New London-Waterford Speedbowl.
