Clem Lamaster with his No. 12 super. After his bad crash at Winchester, Lamaster later became the promoter of the track.

St. Thomas is not hard to find. Take Route 30 west from Chambersburg. Upon entering the town of St. Thomas, turn left onto Jack Road. Go a short distance and go left onto Race Track Road. There will be a sharp bend in the road. Just past the bend, on the right will be a lane. Turn back the lane, past a couple of trailers. At the end of the lane is the track.

This is true racing from the past. This is Charlie Miller racing his midget at the former Sanatoga Speedway near Pottstown. Take note to the shirt and tie driving uniform

This is how the Roscoe Hough Little Pigs would arrive at the races. This is at Hershey Stadium in 1940.

The No. 7 coupe that Diz Dean and Calvin Culp drove was one very sharp race car. What a beauty!
