    Food Concession run by American Legion. Politics to get Permit…Help us with the town…you guys run the Food..Made enough over the years to build “club House”at corner of Rt 22 to turn left to track…I mistakenly mentioned “Lions Club” in intro at Homepage.Never Had “trophy Booth” in later years..the old one was behind the food stand… you got that stuff at Time Slip Booth.

Lived over the old Western Auto store by the tracks opposite “Sam’s-(Gene’s) Got that info from Dan Emerson at Moroso. He grew up in Town …has great Stories !

    Now I remember …there was Also A “Food Concession” stand on the spectator side ….smaller and THE only structure over there , except for bleachers and a lot of dirt parking.

    I beg to differ, but there certainly was a seperate trophy booth from the timing shack. I hung around in it with Freddie Murphy and Carl Spidel in the early days. At one point it was directly behind the food consession from the tower, later it was moved a bit further away on the pit road. I’ve got pics and movies of it.

    the trophy booth was before the finish line … coming up the return road first was the et. slip booth , then then there was a left turn into the pits, just past that on the left was the trophy booth up high … Charlie Tanner worked there for quite some time giving trophy’s and writing checks before he started anouncing
