I think we've already confirmed the later track pics are PID and original shots from York but the car likely ran Keystone too?
Love to see any more pics, whatever track they were taken at...have you tried adding them to your postings using the advanced tab?
If any easier, can you post a link to where you found them or are they included somewhere in this collection of Bill Truby pics...

Keystone Raceway is what the track was called before Pittsburgh international. It was PID for a while in the early 2000 to about 2 years ago, now its back to Keystone. The pictures are in that link you sent. Thereís probably 4000 pics I went through looking for either of my cars. I did find pictures of my brother in laws car he bought about 10 years ago. Coal Duster it is a 72 Duster that ran a Keystone in the 70s and early 80s. Where do you get into the advanced, Iíll try to post the Yenko pictures

you realize they were 2 completely different locations probably 20 miles apart?.. PID ran till about '76 or so and was only a few minutes from where the Chevelle was located in Bridgeville...Keystone was open at the same time..think maybe they opened around '67. the pics Bill took of the Yenko Camaro were at PID...he also took pics at Keystone after PID closed. he also raced at both tracks.

No worries and I'd expect most racing in the area would've been running their cars @ both tracks anyway.
Found the Truby pics L89 must be referring to, LMK if these aren't them also anyone please post more if there are any.
Note added hood lump + tow tabs which may be on the car in the later PID pic as top of previous page but obscured?

I was at Pitt in the late 60's and then lived in Upper Staint Clair, adjacent to Bridgeville up until '82. I only remember the track on Rt. 22, near New Alexandria. Where was the track near Bridgeville?

head out of Bridgeville toward Cecil on the 4 lane Rt. 50..make a right onto the old 2 lane Rt. 50 across from the Farmers market,still headed the same direction. the entrance to the old Dragstrip was just past Rt.978 by Universal Oil..and the track sat up behind it,close to the old Campbells Airport. its all still there,drove a truck down the track some years back. and yes I grew up in that area and still live nearby.

don't know why this gold Yenko got the unique emblem treatment but it makes it easy to ID the car in the old photos

I found this pic that I think was taken of the restored car
