An interesting YouTube clip is making the rounds of racing groups. It's from 8mm footage shot by the late Richard C. White, longtime editor of the Record Herald in Indianola, Iowa.
It shows what appears to be a series of 1964 SCCA club races held at Greenwood Roadway, about 30 miles south of Des Moines, IA.
It's a little tough to identify the makes of the various cars, but the Bugeye Sprites are easy to see in the small bore race about a minute into the clip. And...I can't tell for sure, but there might be some H-Mods in the pack, including a Jabro Mk. III.
Any assistance is welcome.

Digging through a pile of magazines, we came across another shot of Steve Lansing, driving his Crosley to a 14th place finish at Bridgehampton in 1951.
The posting in May of 2010 linked to a video that seems to show Lansing's car spinning into the haybales -- but he must have jumped right back in the fray.
