And who can forget the snakepit? This is a G-rated pic I snapped. lol
Wow, does that bring back memories, mostly bad. Nice shot though.
Paul Newman, with Scott Sharp beside him. Road America 1993
Mario at Indy, 1994
Rick, Roger and Helio. Indy. I apologize for not remembering if this was '07 or '08

New guy here, thanks a million to everyone who posted pics in this thread. I particularly enjoyed the photo of Uncle Bobby in post #8, I worked for for him for a minute in '82 and never saw him in that sort of posture.
Emerson Fittipaldi and Dale Coyne. Sanair Canada 1986. Coyne seemed really low buck!

Roberto Moreno drove the Five Star Galles car on several road courses (86-87)...he even drove the Valvoline car for Galles. I will scan my pics this weekend.
People don't realize how many years Roberto was on the scene.
Ignorant men marvel at extraordinary things. Intelligent men admire simple things.
Those rear wing side-plates were butt ugly.

Sorry, one last one for tonight...the front row of the first race after WWII...taken by my Dad!
Pic 1, is that DePaolo?
Pic2....little help? Mosely I believe is one/
Pic 3 Salt Walther, at Pocono I believe after the crash
Pic 4 Definitely Trenton...Daryl Dockery's car....I have no idea either, that one stuck for some reason
Pic 5....little help? I believe that was Trenton by the fairgrounds grandstand
Pic 6 Kenyon next to Serendipity, Opp perhaps
EDIT....the #51 appears to be a guy named Dee Jones. This was found after a bit of research.
Watson (Dee Jones) : Pat O'Reilly's "Minnesota Serendipity" team had entered three different cars in 1970, an old Huffaker-Chev at the start of the year, a Watson-Ford at Michigan and Milwaukee, and a Gerhardt-Ford that failed to make the race at Phoenix. According to Phil Harms' data, Dee Jones drove an "Unknown/Ford" in 1971 at Rafaela, Phoenix and in practice for the Indy 500. The next time the team appeared was at Milwaukee in 1972 with a Watson-Ford. Gerry Measures has located a picture of the car after Jones crashed it at Indy and believes it to be a 1965 or 1966 Watson.

Pic #2 Rick Muther (mother!)
I know where MJ got the glove idea now...race drivers!
Wondering if anyone has any photos of the Riley in1974 at other than the Speedway, I think I've exhausted the archives there!! Thanks
I'm going through a bunch of slides from '68-'74 at Pocono, Trenton and Langhorne, plus Indy......but my brain needs help, giving me easy stuff such as #, sponsor, color etc may help as I roll through them.....no promises but if I trip over it I'll send it along.Originally Posted by Pete366
EDIT--is this the car? Or is the the #15 with sauerkraut sponsorship?

Bugger, I was looking at the Daryl pic with the sign......the car #4 I do need help with. I figured it was Trenton because of the grandstand roof in the back ground, brain is getting soft, and I have no clue who's car it was, driver or owner. Apologies Kev.

That would be Cliff Bergere on the pole with the Noc-out Hose Clamp Spl.,
Paul Russo with the twin engine Fagoel Twin Coach Spl., and Sam Hanks in the Spike Jones Spl.
Pic 1--Indy.....now that's a rear wing, at 220 mph it probably takes 50hp to cut the wind
Pic 2--Indy--I believe it's ol' Rube, but I've been wrong before with an awol brain....help is appreciated....are they Carling Black Label cans I see??
Pic 3--Langhorne turn 4 during the pace lap...looks like Gary B in front of Mario
Pic 4--20 miles from Langhorne's turn 4 was Trenton's turn 4, unless you count the dogleg as a turn then it's turn 5
Pic 5--Mario's super team mount.....it's got that hot rod look to it
