That's Danny in a '50 Plymouth standard coupe on the high-bank, one-mile track in Oakland, CA. Danny worked at a Chrysler dealership in L.A. as a mechanic and the owner's regular driver was AWOL. Danny got the call. The coupe was powered by a mighty Flathead six, but the Plymouth was light and handled well against the Ford Flathead V-8s. Danny did well enough to take over the ride and race at Carroll and Ascot Speedways.
