Charlie Hiner, left, with Ford coupe he drove for Allen Carter, right.  Note the Oldsmobile engine which they used in this end of the season “run what you brung” race at Taft Stadium in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma in 1957.  It provided a lot of power but it put too much weight on the front wheels to corner well.  They did not have tires that were nearly large enough either.  The trophy was for winning the B feature - Charlie Hiner collection
