I believe these are photos from the late 60s but I have no dates on the pictures.
Let’s name the year, drivers and owners.

I'm not a Port Royal expert and this was 20+ years before my time but I'll take a guess...
Leroy Felty #7
Smoke Snellbaker #53
Sam Yoder #10
John Ebersole (?) #29 ...Don't remember that one
Elmer Ruby #711
Junior Ritchey #880
Dont remember who's in #45 ...maybe Jimmy Smith?
Donnie Varner #44
Johnny Grum #66

I know for fact Smoke was in Bud Hoffman's #53 in 1969, so I'll say just about all of these are from '69

John Dysinger ran the Dan Dailey owned #29 in 1969 and also ran the #7 for a couple shows, other then that I d say Felty was in the 7.

The #44 was actually owned by Donnie Varner, his brother Harold and brother-in-law Joel Anthony, thus the V and A Racing Team. They kept that car right across the street from where I lived and I spent many enjoyable hours there when growing up. :bdf:

Is it just me, or does the No. 53 "look" like the first Bud Grimm sprinter?

"Is it just me, or does the No. 53 "look" like the first Bud Grimm sprinter?"

I`d say. :thumbleft:

I don`t ever remember seeing that car as #53. I guess I was going to more USAC races that year,because I can remember Smoke in the York Cash Register car the year before just fine. :thinking:
