Found these in the attic. New old stock. Purchased in the '70s in Howard Beach, NY, a the track on Cross Bay Blvd. (can't remember the name of the track/shop).  hey are a little worse for wear, I guess the heat and cold got to them. Had numerous more but they must have made it to the trash. Even had some custom ones done by Buster.

The raceway at Cross Bay had an excellent Bob Emott-tweaked Hillclimb.

I think it was Cross Bay Raceway. Used to race there on Friday nights. Always lots of traffic getting there!

I think you are right on the name. We ran at least one USRA East race there and I remeber running an enduro, too.

I know my father raced in the enduro. His cars were navy blue with the yellow Lufthansa logo on them (painted by Buster). I believe I still have the chassis and motor.

Cross Bay Raceway, my home track only six blocks from my house. My first car I bought was a Womp then a some kind of a pan car.

Some good memories there.
