A photo of Don's Roadster at a 1949 dry lakes event, possibly a Rusetta lakes meet. The caption on the back of the photo by Chuck or Joanna Quesnel read "Don Waite's car went 154 mph!". Notice the artwork on the track nose, and the number #48 instead of #348. The class destination is also C and not CL, as Don ran his roadster in the Lakester class due to 1949 SCTA rule changes. 1950 saw the Modified Roadster class introduced.[1] Photo from The Chuck and Joanna Quesnel Photo Collection.
