11N is Ed Naill. Later he drove a red & white car sponsored by Coor's. I vaguely remember him taking a nasty spill down the frontstretch at the Grove where parts when into the stands.

yep thats Charlie. I can remember him towing all the way from CT in a ford Bronco with a little 1 axle trailer. Does anyone what kind of chassis that is?
Im not only going up the rails on a crazy train, but Im behind the throttle and getting paid to do it.

The Coors car (local distributor) was when he got my Dad to build his engine. I only remember meeting him a couple times but he seemed like a nice guy. Ed may have been the last Sprint car guy that Dad built an engine for. I don't recall for sure, but Ed's car may have been former Harry & Bobby Fletcher 66A. It looks like one of their past Bobby Allen cars.

63 car is Jim Gesselman, I think. If I'm not mistaken, he was tall, maybe 6-4 or so, and a former soccer goalie at West Snyder High School.

The #66 looks like it might be an Osborn chassis
