Glen Patrick has raced all of the popular tracks in the Mid-South. His scrapbook is loaded with neat photos. Here are some of his neat Lakeland shots. Thanks to Chuck Jolliff for scanning these photos. Click the thumbnails to enlarge.

Black Panther
The Black Panther at the 1970 WHBQ Drag Festival.
Black Panther
The Black Panther vs. a stock appearing Mustang. Notice the 'misaligned' hood for a little cowl induction effect. Is that starter sitting on a trash can?
Old Glory
Old Glory - a neat old Crown Vic with Keystone Classics.
Old Glory
Old Glory vs. the Mr 'H' 1969 Camaro.
Snake Bite
Snake Bite - a 427 SOHC G.T. 500 with an interesting hood treatment.
Panther - a stout T-bolt adorned with a 10.70 dial.
Lakeland was once dubbed the 'Traction Capital of the South'. Who would argue with launches like this?
