5 MILE POINT SPEEDWAY
KIRKWOOD, NY
These photos were recently unearthed by David Knight whose father George was
an early competitor and car builder at 5MP, Glen Aubrey, Shangri-La and Penn-
Can Speedways. And a highly successful one at that as you'll see in these gems
taken by J. Ralph Jones.

And it fits pretty good too..
Thanks David.
