Pictured are four of the most popular drivers of the 1950’s. From Left to Right: John Erickson, Noel Wynne, Curley Walters and James Ball.

Story told by Noel Wynne: After this picture was taken, the boy had a few laughs along with a few beers. When the conversation turned to racing and who was the better driver, John Erickson told Curley Walters that he (Curley) couldn’t even drive a Kitties Car. Several weeks later they all received a copy of the picture below.
