J.E. Beard in the 59. Maybe Cumberland Speedway in Fayetteville, NC.

J.E. Beard in the 59, and it looks like Tri-co, now Orange County Speedway, Rougemont NC.

so the verdict is in, rougemont, nc. I'd say Jeff H. cleared that one up. Boy, I was waaay off on the #59 driver(did I actually say Roy Hendrick?) ... it looked like a 'winged' number, oops!! at least I got the #12n right, ol' tommy was a terror all over the mid-atlantic LMS region before it became the BUSCH series. I sure do miss those days

Think its JE. Beard in the 59, looks like Trico (now Orange County) they ran some Sunday afternoon races there, that would draw a lot of big names.

J.E. Beard in the Wilson, NC Viking Tire Sales #59, Terrible Tommy Ellis in the Richmond, Va. Channel 12 Television #12 at Trico - Rougemont, NC. Today's Orange County Speedway. J.E. was building engines for Jack Tant in Littleton, NC - that's the origin of his "Flying 59."
