1949 and 1950 would have been the years that Don Slabicki, Ernie Plaag and I were very interested in stock car racing. All those featured in the photos were well known to us, but our hero, Rocky DiNatale wasn't among the chosen. We spent hours over at Rocky's auto shop on Edwin and Olden Avenues watching as those stock car experts built, repaired, and readied their stock cars for races all over the central Jersey area. Above is the centerfold from a 16 page souvenir booklet of the 3rd annual banquet and jamboree at Trenton's Hotel Hildebrecht on December 9, 1950. It was published by the American Stock Car Racing Association.
