Al Bonnell, "King of the Doodle Bugs" one of the best midget drivers around before and after WWII.  Father of sprint car driver, Rich Bonnell, a good one, too, and granfather of Scott Bonell, who is also running sprint cars

Ray Smeznik of Cleveland in Bert Lasiki's "Hoppin Hare" at Sportsman Park.  They had a large model rabbit in the trunk and when Ray would win, he would pull a lever and the Rabbit would pop out.  Ray also drove the Anderson Chev 162 and some MARC new cars.  He finished up his career at Cloverleaf Speedway driving a late model in the 60s.  He was one of the yop drivers at Sportsman Park

The Rowe-Terlop-Hudock 57 Chevy Hurricane Late Model, powered by a 292 Chevy six.  Driver Bob Terlop picked up 6 feature wins at Painesville in 1970 with this car and set the track record twice.  He also picked up a couple of victories at Cloverleaf that year.

Bob James, of Maple Hts, OH.  Winner of over 1,000 feature events in a career that stated in 1946 in the "Roaring Roadsters".  Bob drove coupes, supermodifieds, late models, MARC new cars and ran part of the 1964 season as a team mate to Richard Petty for Petty Engineering and Bob's old friend, Lee Petty.  Still one of the best I've ever seen.

Getting ready for the feature start at Sportsman Park.  81 Ray Smeznik and 33 Norm McCarthy in the front row.  Norm Calhoun in the #19 Hudson and #23 Mike Klapak are a few of the cars you can make out.

Duke Nalon in his Offy Midget.  These pictures were taken at the Akron Rubber Bowl for PR for races there and at Sportsman Park and Canfield.  Probably late 1940s
