My father, Carl Parr, raced at Sunset Speedway in the mid to late 50s. His car # was 5W20 as in motor oil and he raced with Corky Shoebottom. Our family was from St. Clair until we moved in 1960. I remember he was friends with Clare Slack from Sarnia. I have a lot of fond memories of going to the races as a kid and sitting on the turn so I could get mud in my lap.
I also remember watching my father's car disappear over the east end wall and him going upside down on the tract with cars hitting him while his car spun like a top. That was scary!! I still have my father's old yellow and blue leather helmet. I look at it from time to time and think back to those days as a child with great memories. I have pictures but don't know how to send them.
