1961 Article on the Las Cruces Jeepathon Track

• CATEGORIES: Features, Old Images, Old News Articles, Racing, Women & Jeeps

This July 30, 1961, article shared the news that the Las Cruces Jeep Club planned to allow non-racers a chance to drive the ‘Jeepathon’ race track before the racers got a chance to race.  The photos show Carol McDonald checking the jeep and the track. I wish the photos were clearer. I’m guessing she was a Las Cruces Jeep Club member?

    Jeff, yes. It’s the first I’ve heard that there was racing in Las Cruces. There was a big jeep race held just north in Truth or Consequences, New Mexico.
