I see two Walhborg 300's and 1 Viking Craft in the background.   The red racer appears to be a Wahlborg 500 and looks like late 50's early 60's is the setting.

 

Remember there were hundreds of race tracks across the nation during this time era.   Looks like the pit area in Sunny California but other than that it was a typical time of the early quarter midget years.

 

Maybe someone was there who can help us here
