    Ok , I was Raceway Park and the Indy Mile for the champ car races. I also took photos of the vintage cars. I had one problem though. At the mile they threw the checkered too soon. A couple guys were just getting going when the threw it. Here are some shots , and I have some at , .

    I also would like to know when the vintage guys run at Washington Courthouse in Ohio.

    Yes, it's Parnelli.

    Great to see real sprint cars doing what they do best.
  3. What a great shot of Parnelli. He has had quite a life. I will always remember when he had the turbine and went from last to first in a lap or two, and passed everybody on the track. I can imagine the grin on his face.

    DANG!! You got a couple great shots there!!!

    White and Red #10 car is the "ol Bitch" sprinter being driven by Mike Whitney ("Richcraft mike" on here) (note the "B" in the bumper pertaining to the cars well earned nick-name)

    and the Blue #23 is the HART/JONES sprinter being driven by Roy Caruthers ("Racer5c" on here)

    Both cars are my customers.. Myself, Mike, and Roy do the Mantanance on them (And others) and run them.. HARD. ;)
