My best guess, and it is just a guess, is that the program cover is from 1949. I say that because Mike Nazaruk was an AAA regular beginning in 1950 and would have been an unlikely participant in the Friday night shows at Freeport. Nazaruk finished 4th in 1950 AAA Eastern sprint car standings. He won races that year at Williams Grove, Harrington, Bedford, and Rutland. There would have been severe sanctions from the AAA had he ran the Freeport races. Also, TV was in it's infancy and programming of that sort didn't appear until about 1949. I might be wrong but the combination of these two facts narrows it down considerably, IMO.
