Talk about bringing a memory back to life....  That is exactly as I remember Langhorne...  Standing on top of my dad's pick up, alongside the inside of the track...  with all the stars of Indy at Langhorne.

In the second picture, I did not realize there was still "Big" front engine cars competing with the new rear-engine cars like Marios by 1968.

There were two front engine champ cars in this race, Puterbaugh and Chuck Booth, and they both finished in the top 10 (8th & 10th).

I wouldn't want to hit that railing in one of those things.

Wow , thank you for the memories of Langhorne, my father took my older and i to the last 2 Indy car races there, my memory says 1970 & 71. I remember parking at Gimpel Corporation on Woodbourne Rd., walking down the hill to Rte. 1 and hearing the cars from across Rte. 1. Never forget that !! Thanks again !
