  9. Those pictures were taken by photo-journalist, Ed Sarkisian. He had access to the whole track..............He is the guy in the white suit in the last picture.

    I knew Ed, he actually started the Yankee hot rod counsel in 64, I was a member. I still have the points co-champion trophy for 1965, that he presented to me and my race partner.
