These photos date from the late 1950s.This race car was sponsered by Bob Barr's Tavern in Leroy Illinois.The tavern was located where DJ's is today(106 North Chestnut).Besides the the images of the car,you can see it is parked in an identifiable place.One shows it in front of the side of the Masonic Temple building.Another shows the Jones Oil company in the background(next to the post office).In the third photo it looks as if there was a tough day at the track.Note the banged up fenders,roof,and flat tire.
