more vintage Speedweeks...

that's my pops in the 97A (age 18) ready to start the Daytona Beach/Road Course...back in the fifties Tommie Elliott was one of the hottest stock car drivers on the East Coast...In 1954 alone, he captured four individual track championships from Florida to New Jersey and racked-up over 60 feature wins, unfortunately, Daytona wasn't one of them...
