Ted Manning also took the photo.
The item description:
https://www.worthpoint.com/worthopedia/ ... 1727370495INCLUDED IN THIS LISTING IS THE ONE PHOTO SHOWN. THE ALBUM PAGES ARE FALLING APART. I WILL BE ENCLOSING THE BOTTOM PART OF THE ALBUM PAGES WITH THE WRITING AS SHOWN IN THE LAST PHOTO.
I AM GUESSING THIS RACE WAS HELD AT GILMORE STADIUM AND I'M NOT SURE IT WAS A TURKEY NIGHT GRAND PRIX. I'VE BEEN KEEPING BUSY TRYING TO IDENTIFY THE DATES AND PLACES. THE PREVIOUS OWNER DID A GREAT JOB IDENTIFYING THE DRIVERS!
I HAVE ADDED 500 MILE RACE TO MANY LISTINGS. MANY OF THESE DRIVERS WENT ON TO COMPETE IN INDY 500 MILE RACES. I WILL BE LISTING A BOX LOAD OF 1939, 1940 AND 1941 PHOTOS INCLUDING MORE MIDGET BUT MORE 500 MILE INDY RACING.
PHOTO IS 5" X 7" AND THINNER PAPER. THIS DOES HAVE A PHOTOGRAPHER'S STAMP SO I AM LISTING AS REPRODUCTION. I ALWAYS WELCOME COMMENTS AND ADVICE FROM VIEWERS.
PLEASE EMAIL ME WITH ANY QUESTIONS.
The Thanksgiving "Turkey Night" midget event was held at Gilmore in 1934-50, so the pic may actually just be from the last year. Gib Lilley (sp?) who caused the accident is another clue, but I'm not sure I'm reading the name correctly.
Can't be either of the years 1945, 1946 or 1947, as Vukovich didn't win then.

I found the incident curious enough to merit an identification attempt, so please help if you can. I've done the Worthpoint back catalogue for eBay items I might have missed, and sure enough, there were several things of interest, and you've seen all of those in the latest of my posts.
