Lakeside: GOTRA turns back the clock

August 20, 2002


— Lakeside Speedway paid homage to the men and women who have made motor sports in the Kansas City area what it is today by running the Good Ol' Time Racing Association in conjunction with "old-timers night Friday, August 16.

GOTRA's mantra, "turning back the clock - one lap at a time," is a perfect reflection to the mood that they bring with them. Running coupes and sedans from the late 20s thru the late 40s reflects the pride of nostalgia of those young and old.

These are full bore racing machines that put on quite a show. That was proven in the six-lap heats and six-lap dash, but especially in the feature. Ken Ganskow, Columbus, Neb., and Steve Delavan, Tabor, Iowa, showed that starting on the last row is extremely entertaining to watch.

The two meticulously worked their way forward lap by lap in the 15-lap main. On the eighth circuit Delavan took the lead with Ganskow behind by two positions. Two laps later Ganskow captured the point in his 1935 Ford. Delavan, running a 1947 Ford Coupe, finished a close second.
