The 1969 Oswego Classic Drivers Meeting

This photo of the drivers meeting before the 1969 (pretty sure '69) Oswego Classic is great. What an amazing collection of early supermodified racers. Of course, we've made a pastime of identifying these guys.

If you can identify any of these guys (or yourself) please let me know.
