South Seneca - 8:52 (There maybe be footage in here from every year the track ran) 16.) Spencer - 5:00 (1956 to about 1962. You'll love what I did with this because I had tons of footage to work with) 17.) *Syracuse - 3:51 (1950's, 1960's and 1970's.

Waterloo - 4:04 (Includes footage from the 50's, 60's and 70's. I like this piece because I had a bunch to work with) 20.) Watertown - 4:14 (1950's and 1960's footage from different angles of the track. Several wrecks in this) 21.) Weedsport - 4:04 (My favorite part of the whole DVD. All 1950's footage that kind of tells a story that I couldn't resist)

OLD DIRT TRACK CAR RACE - NO WINGS
This video documents a meeting of old dirt track race car enthusiasts during the mid 1980's. At the time, they met annually and put on a race for anyone interested enough to come out to see it. It appears that some were powered by Ford model A's, Crossely's, V8's and large 4 cylinder engines.
