    It was the fall race...I believe 1966, unless my brain is fading again. He started in the back that day. I think that is Tony Sr. at the front with sunglasses. Just a point of reference, at Milwaukee after the consi, they marked the assigned pit area with a number for each driver. In the background you will see Branson's #4 and Billy Foster's #27.I love the tarnished Halibrands.

    Any pics of Chip Mead's White Castle Eagle out there?

    Here's a pic of Chip that I took in '82. I have 2 or 3 good shots of the white castle eagle #49 that I took also. I have to work the next few nights so I'll dig them up and scan/post them for you in a few days. I loved the white castle eagle!

    And who could forget this gem from 1982. Ken Hamilton. Looks like 95% of the car is located behind the drivers head!

    I believe that would be G-Force chassis.

    That could well be the G-force, I couldnt see the air box and I could not remember when the switch to the Dallara occurred

    But it sounded really great when compared to all of the turbocharged cars. I always noticed that even casual fans looked up whenever a NA engined car was on the track in those days.

    Yes, it was a G-Force and they were a great oval car in that period. I was always a little disappointed with Stewart in 2001 as it seemed like he should have been able to win the same way that Montoya had a year earlier. He led some but was never really the car to beat that day. In 2000 Montoya ran a freed up and loose G Force chassis for the entire race and was untouchable. Buddy Lazier tried to catch him but wasn't able to get a real run going. The last 500 that I remember a driver winning in a car raced that loose for that long was Luyendyk in 1990. Whether they were aware of it or not both Luyendyk and Montoya may have been at the peak of their high speed oval car control skills during those two wins.

    I just looked up, about 3 shelves above my desk and see that I have the diecast of Stewart's car, why I didn't think of that when I did the post I don't know. Senio moment I guess.

    Thank you!

    I have a picture of myself posing with Arie and Arie Jr. on Community Day a few years ago.

    If I can figure out how to work my scanner, I'll post it.

    They could make a nice "retro" 2-seater out of it though!

    This one of my favorite photos. This is Raul Boesel's car at Indy on the second day of time trials. Hiro crashed the day before and Raul took over.

    I was more interested in people then machines. I like to think the people in this photo tell the story of that very hot, long day for the Dick Simon team.
