This picture was labeled by someone as “1963 – Eastern States Exposition, Springfield Fairgrounds”, but it is Stafford Springs and it is from 1964, not ’63. The car is Sharkey Gaudiosi’s 44. Ed helped Sharkey to build this car. Photo by Howie Hodge.
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.
