This is Randy Chenowth. We stopped at your museum in Aug 2012 on our way to Bonneville with our motorcycle.
I have a group of photos that I purchased from the estate of Duane Carter, I have 4 photos that I can not identify the car, drivers or the track.I thought you might be able to help. All of these were taken by Bob Verlin & they have his stamp on the back.
I would appreciate help from any one to identify The Cars , Drivers or the Track.

The year was 1947. The number 5 was a new Kurtis Kraft with and an Offy with Chet Gibbins at the wheel. One picture is Chet winning a feature. It was owned by Frank Curtis (no relation to Frank Kurtis) from Long Island, New York. That car and the number 8 that Georgie Rice drove were purchased at the same time from California and brought back to the East coast by Frank Curtis. You can see the C on the front bumper.
I will ask around to see who the other cars are.
