I am considering opening up my "Racing Photos" section for 2014 to include areas not covered now on the site. Also, anyone interested in writing a 'RACING THEMED' COLUMN or BLOG please contact me at:   JACK'S E Mail

     Please do not send photos that have been sent to other 'Nostalgia' sites, as the advertisements on those sites goes against my intent.

If anyone has "YOUR OWN", not other people's images, that you want to be posted, send them to me here: 

I do not profit from other people's submissions !!!   JACK'S E Mail

I DO NOT STEAL OTHER PEOPLE'S PHOTOS, AS A LOT OF "HISTORIANS" DO, AND REPRESENT THEM AS MINE. ONLY THE PHOTOGRAPHER'S  NAME IS POSTED BELOW THE SUBMITTED PHOTOS, NOT MINE AS IS THE 'NORM' !!

From the 'WHO'......Lyrics from:

"Won't be Fooled again"

"Meet the new Boss...Same as the Old Boss !!"

No 'VP Director of Short Track Operations', no "Director of TRACK PR", no corporate heads, just a short track paying a whole lot of money !!

"Clash at the Can " paid $8000 + to the winner, Billy Decker !

Winner of the "GOBRECHT MEMORIAL" WON $7000 !

Winner of the Mitch Smith Memorial won $10,000 not $300 !!

Look at what Fonda, another short track paid  $9500!!

"What it Was"

I recently sent a message to Scott Pacich commenting about "Where racing went wrong". Scott picked up on it , added his racing memories, along with his father's racing endeavors, and came up with this column........
