Historic Print #28: Sparks & Bonney at Riverside (1957)

$ 20.00

The Sparks & Bonney team wait in line outside Riverside International Raceway back in 1957 to check in for the December 1st 250 mile USAC Stock Car Race. The former Bill Stroppe '56 Mercury was now painted the familiar S&B team colors of blue with a white racing stripe. Reports on the number of entries range from 33 to 36 and owners and car numbers aren't listed. We checked the February 23, 1958 USAC entry list at the same venue and the S&B car was running the same number. The program listed Jim McCorkindale as the driver but we have it that Billy Garrett drove and finished close to the front. On the far right you can barely make out the nose of the '57 Merc wearing the number 5. Using our same logic we've determined this was Jimmy bryan's ride and that he finished in 11th in the December Race.
