The Best Race Tracks of the '60s: Watkins Glen, Indy, Road America
Elkhart Lake 1956 - start your engines.

In 1956 I was on leave from the Coast Guard and had my first camera in hand

As I arrived at Elkhart Lake in 1956, I took this shot—one of my first anywhere.

This was the start of the feature race and drivers were milling around their cars, getting ready for a standing start.

Carroll Shelby won the race in a Ferrari against a very good field of D-Jaguars and other potent entries. 

Road America has since become one of the premier tracks in the country.  I managed to get back up there in 1958 and spent the following years there covering the races for Competition Press and many Chicago-area drivers.
