The Back Story: 

Top: The #140 is a Bob Bingham owned car, shown here in 1959 after a win by my Uncle, "Fearless” Fuzzy Fosby.

Notice the wooden rails around the high banks.  I bet they were safe, anyway, I believe that Bob Bingham welded the steel boiler plate around the entire speedway, replacing the potential toothpicks with the wall we are all familiar with around LV these days.

Second: This must be “Fearless” Fosby’s Head Shot he sent to all the movie agents back in the day. 

Third: The start of a big one at LV 55 years ago, according to Bud.  What transpired after this shot was taken was that the #3 ended up on top of Daniel Gowey, who in turn, was crashed upon by Dee Goodermote, who landed on top of him.  If I got that correct, sounds like one hell of a brew ha-ha going on there.
