Another pic for the collection of Ted Ernst. Thanks again, Ted!

(Ted's description) 1/6th mile dirt track, Kenosha, Wisconsin, 1955. 10-mile team race. Resting, getting gut massage - Al Stiller, '48 Olympic team. About to break collarbone - John Milicent, Kenosha. Over the top - Bob Pfarr, Kenosha, 1950 Nat'l Champ.

(notes from AR) Note the bent back rim and loose rear tubular on Stiller's bike (you can see the rear tubular above his left hand). Note also the John Milicent's motorsports-style helmet - what are the two clamps on his seattube? And is Pfarr wearing some sort of cover over his left ear?
