Very interesting stuff Jeff.

See a lot of familiar names (Dick Barney, Frank Myroncuk, Al Wardell, Pete LeVance (I think he was the flagger when I first went to Wall), and I even saw Jack Duffy's name in there somewhere.

Not sure if you're looking for another project, but if time allows, and if there is interest, there was a gravel pit track in Manahawkin (I think located where the Ford dealer is now on Rt 72) that operated probably sometime in the early 50's.  Pretty sure the track was replaced by an actual track that set back a little farther (south) from the original location, but in the same general area.  My mom attended races at the original track.  I don't remember the competitors names but I know that one of them's last name was Schinn.

Thanks Jeff for documenting the history as you do!
