Bob Womack visited from Raytown MO USA
I just found this site while playing on the computer. I am a huge racing fan, although my tastes run more towards the Top Fuel dragster side. But, I like just about any type of racing. The only thing I race are high performance go-karts. I have been to Richard Pettys school once, in Las Vegas, and am going this July at Kansas Speedway. I just cannot get enough!

Mark Shoemaker visited from Okla Tulsa Usa
well u forgot to mention guys like Gene Paddock, Pete Rasnic,Bill Thorton , Little Joe Sieghfried, Squirt Bartholemew, and many more it still brings chills down my spine to remember the days of the old Tulsa Fairgrounds Speedway. Although it may be gone it will never be forgotten by a few of us that can rember it . i remember the night a young james mcelreath pulled in and set the place on fire with shis driving style . I remeber the first ncra event ever held was at that track and Emmitt hahn won it the pic of buddy cagle and pete york was taken at warbonnet raceway in 1968 pete beat buddy in that race it was also the first time the supers had run on asphalt in okla. Or the sunday in hutchinson ks that we can never forget . when Odell anderson and George armstong tangled on that dusty track and started one of the worst racing accidents ever
Still a great site!

Bud Hunnicutt visited from Raymore Missouri United States
Racing in Kansas was fun.The old Fairgrounds track holds so many memories it is hard to pick a favorite.Being in Topeka in time for "hot laps" was a real challenge as the interstate system was not in place yet and Bud's employer never cut him any slack or time off.So it was a race to get to the track so you could race some more.The Kansas drivers were tough and the KC guys stayed competitive and it made for some very interesting confrontations.We watched some great races there and now bemoan the lack of video tape back then to preserve the evidence.

Thank you for this great website and for including my grandfather, Frank Lies. We spent many weekends at 81 Speedway and especially treasured those times when we could go down into the pits. All the photos and excerpts have afforded me the opportunity to relive my childhood memories through an adults perspective. I have always been witness to how special he is, but it deeply touches my heart to realize just how much he means to others, too. Yes, indeed, "Frankie" Lies was an incredible driver, but he remains an even more incredible man. (I love you Daddy Frank.)

"Livin on Tulsa Time"
Dan Noble visited from Springtown Texas USA
I was first introduced to Tulsa speedway by Jack Wickett stopping by the gas station I worked in getting gas for the #75. I grew up at the Tulsa 5/8 track. There were so many drivers who left a life time impression with me. I was always so excited when someone from out of town would come to test the best Tulsa had to offer such as Mario Fuentez,Fast Fred Hembree, Jeff Forshee, Dale Reed, Johnny Boe, Bullet Bob Ewell, Jon Johnson, and my favorite was when the bright orange 24 of Jelly would come into the pits with a "young" Jerry Stone list as the driver. Man I was " Livin on Tulsa Time" Thanks for the memories.

I grew up watching these my dad drive these cars. I am grateful to you for posting his picture and the thousand of others who had the "need for speed". What a thrill it is for me to remember watching the incredible racing of the past. No wings and the early sprinters with the open cockpits. If you want to talk about EXTREME sports, man that was it. Really enjoyed your site, and I can't wait to show it to my dad. Thanks.

I am Frankie Lies's granddaughter and I'm absolutely thrilled with this web-site!!! I have so many fond memories of watching my grandpa race at 81 Speedway and hold them all very dear in my heart. The noise, our old chants and cheers, watching and giggling from the stands as we could see my grandpa down in the pits changing out of his jumpsuit, running from the stands to the pits at just the right moment after the cars raced by, staying late to eat steaks after the race, and driving that track one last time in my grandpa's cadillac as we drove away! Absolutely incredible memories and I cannot thank you enough for including him in all this fabulous work you have done!!! THANKS FOR THE MEMORIES!!!

Wow! I grew up in Amarillo, Tx. AMARILLO SPPED BOWL and grew up around the likes of Lyndon Moss, C.J.Bichael, Ed & RV Funderburke, Kenny Stidd, Tommy Bluejacket and many others. Also Ralph Parkinson Sr drove one of our cars in the 60's. Years later I move to Gladstone and end up living near the Parkinson's. Small world? Between Knoxville in the 70's 80's 90's and helping out at the Chili Bowl every year I'm reall caught in the middle between the Past and the Future. Thanks for all the hard work that you have done and to all those that contributed photos. I can flash to the past, see the future and pass on stories to my children of both.

Duncan visited from Sydney NSW Australia
I really enjoyed my visit here, and it was great to see a photo of Gene Welch. I seen Gene Welch when he came to Waikaraka Park in the 70's. He had a 454 Chev Camaro Super Saloon back then, and it was a joy to see him racing on the dirt track. He blitzed everyone in New Zealand. One race i seen him in here, they gave the other drivers a 1 lap head start, and he still won. He is definetly one of the most awesome drivers i have seen race. Back then, he was from Sacramento California. Keep up the great work on your website, it's a masterpiece for all us dirt track racing fans, Happy New Year, and all the best, have a good one mate, i really had a fun time on your site, thanks for your great work.

Just looked at the great pictures of the vintage cars. Must have been something to drive! My wife liked seeing the pictures too, as her Father from the Panhandle, raced at Liberal, Beaver and Hugoton, and can remember the car styles. You are to be commended for your efforts in creating a super site that can only bring back great memories. Those who had never seen the older cars must be thinking "Too Cool!". Just think what people will think about the cars today when they see them on a web site in 30-40 years!

Thanks for a great website. I grew up in Wichita and remember nearly all the supers and drivers you have presented. I can recall as far back as the old Frontierland Speedway out on west 54 highway in Wichita. Those were the jalopy days and from there I've been hooked. The supermodifieds were my favorite era because the cars were unique with all the various body styles and paint schemes. Today, I love to go to the sprint car races, but my first love will always be the supers!

I grew up in Tulsa going to the 3/8 and then to the so called 1/2. (It was really 5/8 mile) Watching Ray Crawford in the Plunket Tile car to the Hillenberg Car. It was exciting to watch every saturday night. Looking for my favorite car to maybe restore. It was Shot Hamptons famous 94. Lyndon Moss was the last owner. Maybe it is in somebodies barn. Great site.
Frank Morrow visited from Texas
Tks for the great pictures. I had a summer school class with Buddy Cagle, although we went to different high schools. It was a joint class at Tulsa Central. He went to Will Rogers. I noticed a driver named Cates from Lawton. I wonder if he is related to Ray Cates, who owned midgets in the heyday folling WWII. Living in Texas, I didn't see very much of these cars except when they came to the Devil's Bowl. However, my sister and I went to Tulsa and saw incredible racing one night between Hahn and James McElreath, before the latter went on to USAC.

Jack Alwood visited from Woodstock Georgia USA
I lived in the tulsa area during the mid 60's to the early 70's and spent many a Saturday night at the Tulsa Speedway. Those years were on the 3/8 clay track and always drew crowds of 10,000+. During 1971 and 1972 I built and drove a VW mini stocker at the Tulsa track as well as Muskogee. I guess my all time favorite drivers were Emmitt Hahn and Jackie Howerton. One night for a special promotion,several of the super modified drivers were assigned to drive the mini stockers for a 5 lap race. Jackie Howerton drove my #1 VW and won the race. Although we have an excellant 3/8 clay track here in Woodstock, it still doesn't come close to the excitement of the old days. Keep up the good work. Although I am now drawing social security my blood still heats up over dirt track racing.
Thanks for the memories

This is something great you've done here. People can come and visit the past even though I wasn't involved in the racing in the 70's just a kid it is very interesting to go back and look at the early racing and drivers. Sometimes it seems like past racing wasn't as uneven as it seems to be now. You can't just go out and have fun anymore and that is a shame. I'll enjoy the hours I'll spend going through this.

Thanks for including grandfather in the memorials. I know he is greatly missed not only by family but also his racing family. This past summer I went to Wichita to accept an award in his behalf. He along with many other's was inducted into the Wall of Fame which is located at the 81 speedway. This was so cool and I was so proud to do this for him. I grew up with racing and seeing this web-site was so neat. Thanks again for remembering a man who for me was an important part of my life, I learned alot from him especially the years following gramma's passing.

Jeff Bray visited from Penn Yan New York USA
Great web site. I grew up in Fowler (south of Dodge City) and Sterling, KS (20miles west of Hutch). My folks use to take us to Dodge, Liberal and Hutch to watch Larry Dewell from Fowler and so along with that came Davey Ross, Herb Copeland, Dale Reed, Jerry Stone, the # 6 / 8 Issac Truck Line cars. That started a real love in motorsports for me. I am currently on the medical staff for the CART/FedEx Champ car series. I just got back from Japan and found this site while looking up info on Nance Speed Equipment. I have booked marked the site and will visit often. When I return to Sterling this July I will look for some photos that maybe I can contribute. Wow - talk about bringing back memories. I can still remember very well sitting in the grandstand at Dodge and Hutch. The Nationals in Hutch were awsome. I still pull out some of my old NCRA programs and take a trip back to when men drove real race cars. Thanks for the trip down memory lane. Good luck with the site.

Just wanted to tell you how much I enjoy looking at the old supers and Late Models from Kansas and Oklahoma that you have on your webpage. I worked at Enid Speedway from 1970 to 1992and remember almost every one of the cars you have pictures of from them racing in the winternationals at Enid each year. Hope you get more pictures from Oklahoma for your webpage

Longview Racing Bowl
George LeBlanc visited from New York New York Staten Island
When I was stationed in Fort Polk,lousyanna,I would go by bus to Longview Racing Bowl by myself every weekend. I would walk to the track from the bus station,quite a few miles,but it was worth every step. I loved those 6 cylinder supers. They sounded like a behive going down the backstretch. Always got a ride to the bus station after the races as soon as i put my thumb out. As soon as I got in the car my ride would say,"you're a service man ,aren't you" I would say "YES" then he would say,"you're from New York,aren't you" I would say ,"yes". But they still drove me to the station every week.Great track,great drivers,never forget it.Would love to see pictures or films of it.Thanks,George LeBlanc.
Dennis Deal visited from Wichita Kansas USA
Thanks so much. Viewing the pictures on your site just floods my memory. I am 53. I followed the supers, champ cars and sprints for over the last 27 years. I believe the years from 1973 to 1983 were the most exciting. I wish I had photograps to contribute. Please folks if you have pictures, the place for them is here, Thanks again!!!

Tim & Tisha Loomis visited from Tyrone OK USA
This is a great website. My husband and I are especially fond of it because my husband's dad (Richard Loomis) raced Late Models during this time frame, and my dad (Denny Duvall) raced super modifieds during this time. Now we have continued the family racing tradition as my husband drives a street stock and I drive a pony stock, and we have a 18 mo. old who we can't wait to get in a go-cart.

Late Models and Supermidifieds
Lyle Brown visited from Wichita Kansas Sedgwick
Neat site. Now I can show some of the younger guys what I meant when I talked of going to the races as a kid. My dad and I used to go to Dewey Ok. for a special treat to watch the supermodifieds. I remember one car that was black and said "Murphy Special" on the side. I can't remember the car's number but the driver was a midget and man was he good. He won quite often in the supermodified class. Thanks for the cool site.

David McCaslin visited from Friendswood Texas US
I was wondering if someone would take the time to create a web-site like this. I grew-up going to the races in Tulsa from about 1967. My favorite car of all time was the one of Harold Leep drove that they made a "Model". It was a really nice looking race car, maybe you or someone remembers which one I'm refering to.

Brandon Worf visited from Garden City Kansas United States
I thought I'd return the favor of signing the guestbook. I went through all of the old photos and I'm impressed. That's a lot of archival stuff there, and it'll impress my grandad Lanny Harvey. He's been invovled with micro sprints/modified midgets since 1973 and I drive his car now, albeit very different from what he drove 28 years ago. He's also been involved with some sprints and midgets over the years, but not much. Great photos and I will post a link on my site!

Rod Jacobs visited from Wichita Kansas USA
My dad was Pete Jacobs who raced and won many Features at Cejay, 81 Speedway, and was always a contender at the Nationals in Hutchinson. He was an early advocate of the roadster (pre-supermodified)when most were still driving the coupes. He drove Supers' for Bob Jordan of Wichita and Dean Wallace of Peabody. Great site!

Ralph Foley visited from Okla. City Oklahoma
Loved your site. Worked at Enid Speedway from 1970 to 1994 so I remember the good lod days of supers. Another Oklahoma driver who raced super, Late Models and Pro stock who has passed on is David Flatt Jr. who won the very first Enid Winternationals in 1966 in a super. Will talk to Francis(his wife) or Gary (his son) and see if I can get you some pictures of other Oklahoma Supers as well as one of Flatt's. Keep up the good work on bringing the young people pictures of a great era in racing in OKlahoma and Kansas
You've done it again!
