Automobile production in 1907 in the U. S. totaled over 50,000 cars valued at more than $100,000. new Dwight Cook, Algona owner and manager of the race track at the fairgrounds here during the coming season, announced information of interest to car owners and drivers and fans alike this week. The first event will be May 27, and there will be stock car races each Friday night during the summer months, with warm-ups slated to begin at 8 and racing at 8:30 p. m. every week. There will also be at least one night of races at the Kossuth County Fair in August. - Cars to be used during 1966 will not be referred to as semi- modified antf hobby stock cars - but as stock cars. Capable of turning the quarter-mile track here almost as fast as the roaring modifieds featured during the past several years, bodies of later-vintage autos will be used - up to 1960. Modified engines will be used, but there will be a limitation on the carburetion from recent years. This change has been made, according to Cook, to allow the cost of autos to be dropjjed in an attempt to make it possible for more cars to be built and run here. There has already been much enthusiasm among car owners and drivers alike - and it appears there will be plenty of cooperation, which should assure a great season of racing. Cook has been contacted by many owners and drivers from this area and from cities further away, with many indicating they will have cars in operation here. There has also been a change announced for admission, with adults to pay $1, with children under 12 free when accompanied by parents. Anyone wishing further information may get rules, which are now being mailed, from Dwight Cook, Box 426, Algona.
