Ken Shoemaker

1955-10-08 – Fonda. This was Ken’s first win at Fonda. This particular race was held the night before the big Langhorne National Open (won that year by Pete Corey), and some of the fastest cars/drivers had skipped Fonda in order to be at Langhorne. Thanks to Ed Mudd for the information. Photo by Dan Ody, via Bill Ladabouche.

Ken Shoemaker

This is the famous 2x coupe after its windows had been enlarged and it had been turned into a full-time dirt car. In 1970 builder/owner Bob Judkins sold it to Tiny Lombard, who campaigned it as #3 with Rene Charland as his regular driver. Photo by John Grady, from Racingthroughtime.com.grady
