To round out the week, another hodge-podge

I recognize the Stoker name. Rolly Stoker I believe. Good with small motors, like those found on outboards, etc.

old-time soap box racing

The Sun sponsored some soap box racing in the 194os. Featured in their Sun-Rays column on the comics page.

The name Fred Cooney rings a bell. I believe he's the same as the midget racing owner from the 1950s. Ferry Meat Market?

A couple clippings from the 1973 racing activities in the Greater Vancouver area. (I can't bring myself to call it Metro Vancouver, because they'll probably change it back in a few years.)
