More Stock Cars at the CLE

Here's another group of Stock Car Jockeys from the 1950's, and you can vividly see the Canadian Lakehead Exhibition Coliseum building and the huge wooden entrance gate to the pit area. If you live in Thunder Bay, you can go and see this building, right across from the Golf Dome. Where the stock cars are is part of the parking lot for all the exhibition outbuildings today. #24 is unknown, but the Massaro brothers, Al(#88), Tony(#87), as well as Don Marsh(#10)...Pappy Fowler also drove #10 but I believe this is Don....were all very well known in this area. The logo on the right was used for many years during the club's reign here, and was on every program and every stock jockey's jacket at that time. I love these vintage photos showing the fun and excitement of Stock Car Racing, and also how we destroyed all those 30's and 40's Fords & Chevy's. Click on pictures.
