This picture was labeled by someone as “1963 – Eastern States Exposition, Springfield Fairgrounds”, but it looks a lot more like Stafford Springs (Springfield was asphalt), and I suspect it is from 1964, not ’63. The car is Sharkey Gaudiosi’s 44. Ed helped Sharkey to build this car.

Ed sometimes raced Sharkey Gaudiosi’s pink-and-white 44s, including this car not long before Gene Bergin has this wreck in it.
Another view of Sharkey Gaudiosi’s 44 after a crash when Gene Bergin was driving.
