This car was owned by Benny Washburn. Denny Zimmerman informs us that Ed drove the 15 (sometimes numbered 15x) several times in 1960. On another website this photo was captioned ‘Victoria Speedway”, a dirt track in Dunnsville, NY. My guess is that it was not taken at Victoria, but why someone would put that caption on it without being reasonably sure of the facts is unclear.
This is Gene Bergin in Benny Washburn’s 15x.
