HOME OF THE "NY STATE FAIR CHAMPIONSHIP"
These photos have been sent by Sandy Swift Downey of Moorseville, North
Carolina and depict  her father, 3 time NYS Fair Champ Nolan Swift during his
championship run from 1956 through 1958. Sandy relates:
Jeff –
Well, I am going to attempt to send you some pictures and articles from the
1956 -57 era.  You should recognize Bill Wright in some of the pictures.  The
driver in the grey Sears and Roebuck work clothes is my father!  Most of the
pictures are from the NYS fairgrounds.  The last few are from Oswego
Speedway from the same time frame.
I really have enjoyed browsing your website.  If you have any questions please
feel free to contact me. Sandy

Many thanks to Sandy for these great pictures - enjoy!

1957 at Oswego, what a neat car the 10Pins was.
This has to be earlier in the '37 coupe at Oswego or perhaps Brewerton.
Mechanic Billy Wright and Nolan Swift.
Just before the supers, Nolan ran this car as a coupe with the body, and as a super without it..
