Wally Parks wrote this rare timing slip in pencil for the L.A. Gophers in June 1942. By government decree all racing was stopped in the United States in June of that year because of the war, but that didn't stop racing on the street. The California Highway Patrol asked Wally Parks, an officer with SCTA, to help organize this speed event at an airstrip that was completed in 1942 at the Ontario Airport. Soon Parks would head off to war in the Pacific and Danny and his fellow SCTA members would be scattered around the world. Danny considers this one of his prized possessions.
