Hello RacersReunion Community.

I am posting this in the hope that some of you may be able to share some photos of my Grandfather, Glenn Guthrie, who raced Modifieds & Late Models predominantly in the Mid-Atlantic area in the 1950's, 1960's & 1970's. He also raced multiple times on Daytona Beach in the 1950's, then on the Speedway until a horrific crash there in 1970 ended his superspeedway career.

A couple of highlights in his racing career were winning the 1957 Langhorne National Open and the 1959 Modified National Championship.

As a family, we have quite a bit of newspaper clippings, but do not have as many photos as we like. It would be great if any of you may have some to share, or could perhaps point me in the direction of others who might be able to do so. I have already received some from Joe at 3 Wide's, Larry Jendras, Jr., PattyKay Lilley and Chase (thank you again), and have seen the few that are posted on the site.

On a related note, even if you do not have a photo to share, if you have a memory, it would be great to hear. Unfortunately, my Grandfather passed away at a young age, and I did not have the opportunity to chat with him in detail about the good 'ol days...

Thank you in advance.

Kevin

Thank you, Dennis, for the suggestion. I actually reached out to the MD Hall of Fame prior to posting here; I received a response that they would try to find any other photos that they might happen to have accumulated over the years.
