                  “From Humble Beginnings’…like most “Speed Shops”of the era …started out with the taped on posters.The Fred’s crew started that way and so did Champion Auto Engineering.None of these shops would have existed,if it wasn’t for Dover ,and the other tracks creating the parts demand. Could this be George’s first racer?. Check out the full window of N.Y. National win decals.
