From 1958 at Beechmont Dragway in Cincinnati, OH

YouTube - Beechmont Dragway Cincinnati, Ohio "Early Drags Part 2"

My dads account.
This is from 14 Sep 58. I am certain of the date because the "trophy girl" was my girlfriend (Carol McCampbell - still married to Woody Galloway). The Cincinnati Times-Star published a photo of her handing out the trophies. She is wearing the same clothes in the photo as in the youtube film. I also have a pit pass with her name and the above date on it. In addition, I have a trophy from that day with the inscription:

BEECHMONT DRAGWAY
REGIONAL MEET
9-14-58
E/SP
I haven't gotten an answer on what he was racing, but it was probably his modified Crosley. When he was 15 his dad bought him a fiberglass kit car and an old Crosley. When he was finished it with it looked like a European race car.
