Photograph caption dated February 27, reads, "Action at the oval - Excitement, work and disappointment are part of routine at quarter-midget track. Safety is factor, too. No child has been injured. Roy Anderson, handler, above left, has narrow scrape when car driven by Kevin Yates, 8, skids off track. Above right, Garry Gjerset, handler, gives advice to hungry driver, Andre Boursse, 8. Below, left, Don Bailey, 12, watches while Everet Wilson, 6, of Encino, pumps tire. Kids help repair own racing autos. Bobby Goethals, 8, lower right, has less luck with tires. His came off."
