    I thought some here might get a kick out of this. My father was a successful stock drag racer in South Florida in the early 60’s.

    About two years ago I had a custom poker chip set created to commemorate his career. I decided I wanted to have a matching table made and this is what I came up with. The racewall has numerous South Florida shoutouts from Hialeah Speedway (his “home” raceway) to his sponsor (Munroe Zeder) and even ads lifted directly from the background of racing photos from the 60’s.

    Well I was able to get most of them up...the image uploader was being finicky even from desktop. There was one more old Miami throwback ad that I couldn't get to load no matter how hard I tried.
