ears pointed to the sky and the ground as he sped around the turns After these came things like with the ing young Frank manipulating his mous when Ascot was out near Lincoln Park in the North Broadway direction There have been sub- sequent Ascot in other locations Even Gilmore on Fairfax made significant contributions to the for it was here that midget auto racing achieved its first There
