Was there many times, never many cars. A few things I remember it was very hard to see the cars in turn 1 and 2 Cliff Richardson and "Wild Bill" Evens had a match race there, it way HYPED on the local radio station for about a week. Remember the Jacobs Brothers taking Cliff Richardson's "NEW" Chevy coupe with a GMC 270 6 banger in it for a ride and they dumped it in turns 3-4, was not even painted yet, this happened after the regular racing was over for the day. I always remember going home and stopping at the Dorsey House for a burger and a cold soda.
