1953 Hoosier Hundred Program


Here are two great finds flagged by Bill Blaylock of the Yahoo Auto Racing History Group. Both are programs to 1950's auto racing programs. One is the 1953 program for the Hoosier Hundred dirt car race (the photos at the Hoosier Hundred link are from 1968). This - 1953 - was the first running of what was probably the premiere dirt car race in the country for many years.
The second program is for a 1952 midget race at the Indianapolis 16th Street Speedway. Both these programs contain interesting photographs and, especially in the case of the Hoosier Hundred program, great biographies of the drivers of the era.
