Sorry if you have been getting a message from Google that says the site may harm your computer. This is in reference to an incident about a year ago when the site got attacked. The site has been clean for a long time, but Google is not smart enough to clear the message on their own. So I just pushed for a review and the message should be off Google soon. Sorry for the confusion.
Message to Google..."You lazy bully!"

"Hi, Since I was at Sandusky Speedway in the 60's,and have spent time with the Gresley's at their home,if there is ANY questions about Bingo 5-Bingo 151-or Gordinski,why don't you call Jim Gresley on 11 mile rd in Ceresco,Mi ( Battle creek).He should have a little idea about things,CANNONBALL was his dad(I think) and they lived side by side out in the country YOU DO HAVE some relly neat pictures,even if a few have the wrong names on them. Thanks".

Noel Terry writes in "Do you have any pictures of the old Alviso Speedway in Alviso,calif.?"
