    My mom and dad were avid racers back in the late 50's and 60's at Balboa. My dad raced modifieds and my mom raced powderpuff until she got tired of it and moved to racing the mexico circuit against the men. She ended up being #1 in mexico for several years before retiring from the circuit. Would love to find some of the old photos taken of them back in the day. Their names were John T. Bennett, and Dorothy J. Bennett "Blondie". I can be reached via and thanks all for the great photos and site too.

    Great album Drew!   Have you seen the new Revell  Mongoose re-issue?  It's the same tooling as the early 70s monogram prudhomme/mcewen issues with the christmas tree and crew figure.  Now I wish someone would make the repo decals of those old kits.  I would love to make Prudhommes "yellow feather" again. Don

    Bob: Your father's work is VERY much appreciated.  My dad and mom spent many nights at Balboa Stadium watching these modifieds, jalopies and midgets.  Frenchie Faulkner, Parnelli Jones, Bob McCoy, Billy Vukovich, Jim Wood... many great drivers.  I would be interested in purchasing some photos if you are interested.

    Alaska racer Bob Lunsford ran this A/Comp drgaster.  Though based out of Anchorage, he often ventured to So-Cal.

    Corvette Modified Sports
    This car ran a 331" Chrysler for CC/GS class and later a blown 396" Chevy for the more popular BB/GS category.  A fun car to watch as it often launched the wheels off the line.

    The Lovelle Brothers, A/Street Roadster
    I really loved this car.  At one point it served as one of the fastest A/SR's on the West coast.  I always wondered what happened to it.

    I just found out tonight on what happened to Cajon Speedway. And most of on the passing of Ed Hale. I was teenager who went there in the late 83- 86 seasons. Met Ed couple of times a true racer and gentleman on and off the track.
