According to the track records, 1961, 1962 and 1964, the Super Modifieds of that era were featured at Toledo Speedway. The track, which began life as a dirt track in 1960, was paved for the 1961 season.

Pictured are 1961 champ Dick Carter (#1) and 1962 king Gordon Dukes (#79). Notice the wing…it started way back then!

1964 champ Nolan Johncock drove the #7 to the track championship. Check out the scoring tower at the top of the stands…
