My dad signing for his 3rd place Heat Race money of $20.  He ran last in the Expert Final --but at least he made the Final. Not bad for racing against the Harley Davidson Factory Racers.

These images were sent to me by George Holter # 60 K.  George and his brother Fred have been collecting racing memorabilia for over 50 years. (Thank You!)

It is due to their research that I am now going to be able to get my father's name on the  Monument for EXPERT riders.

George is the field reporter for the WHITE PLATE FLAT TRACKERS ASSOC.  AT STURGIS SD.  It's for EXPERT RIDERS ONLY ( which he is ) and there is a nice Monument there with the WPFT MEMBERS NAMES ON THE MONUMENT.

George raced during the late 1950's to the mid 1960s. He raced at WINFIELD 1963-1964,1965.  Look for several of his photos on the following website: http://winfield.50megs.com/16May65.htm
