Popular 100" supermodified (#09) driver Ted Bacon from Bartlesville/Dewey OK aboard the Jim Wallace Nance 1j. This was probably the 77 or 78 Jerry Weld Memorial Race at Lakeside Speedway in Kansas City, KS.
John Kalb of Mecom Kalb Firestone help make this ride for Ted possible. Ted drove this car at several tracks in the Oklahoma area for Jim.
It's also said to be the first Nance Sprint Car made.
