Just found an envelope with some photos and newspaper clippings. One small envelope contained a letter from the 1970 track manager of Farmer City, Jr Smith addressed to my Dad.
July 28, 1970
Just a note to tell you we've got seven more nights of racing this season. You have been one of the most faithful, we want to say thank you for helping us make the track one of the best for cars and attendance.
See you Friday night.
PS Where's that Mustang!
Just thought a few of you would be interested to know that even in 1970, like most tracks today, the track manager appeared to be concern with car counts and attendance.
