1951 Langhorne National Open

Recommended Posts

Thought some if you might enjoy this.  Funny to hear comments on how racing has changed and the difficulty in being an owner-driver in 1951.

Wrecks are scary, two seperate fires on this day.

Great idea PA.  If we can't watch or attend racing right now, lets watch some good vintage racing.  Any of you who have been on here long have probably seen it. I've posted it here before.  But it's some classic stuff.  I first met Jud when I was 6 years old.  He and his brother (our next door neighbor) stopped by with a race car to get my dad to make some timing adjustments on the  car.  That night my dad took me to the first race I can remember attending, as we watched Jud win the feature at Oak Hill Downs just southwest of Austin. In this video, Jud drives Foyt's  sprint car in a USAC race some years later.  Enjoy.

This is a great video too. I can’t remember seeing sprints without cages.  I think they are some of the greatest looking cars that ever existed.  I would have loved to see Jud Larson race.
