I'd like to enter these and add congratulations to long-time stox photographer Colin Casserley for these fantastic shots:

and an un-named Late Model catches a slight bump in the clay at Brownstown, Indiana :D

Colin's work can be viewed on the fantastic Stoxphotos website :up:

Most beautiful thing in all of motorsport is when a rally cars flies through the air. Especially when in Finland.

Pop Quiz, who is this man ?

Mickey Thompson.


:up: one time manager of Lions drag strip.

"The Last Drag Race"


It was October 9, 1955-opening day at Lions Drag trip in Wilmington, California. Mickey Thompson was the track manager and only paid employee. He and his all-volunteer staff had no idea what to expect. They were prepared to handle up to 2500 people and possibly 50 cars. But over 10,000 people came swarming through the dusty field and down to the track that day. The crowd had no patience with the incredibly long lines at the ticket booth. They simply dismantled what little fence there was and made their way down to the logs that served as seats. Of the 400 cars that showed up that day, over 25 percent had to be turned away, due to bald tires and generally unsafe condition. The P.A. system broke down. The portable toilets overflowed. The food supply ran out. The water, which had to be trucked in, ran out. The dust was unreal. The crowd piled right onto the track to watch the action. Pandemonium prevailed. In other words, opening day at Lions was an unqualified success.

Seeing the joy in this mans face, after being through what he has been through - this pic reminds me that the human spirit is enduring.

For those of you who dont know Alex Zanardi. Spend some time reading about his incredible career.

Hm.. I guess he lost the tip of his right middle finger in the accident, too.

You can also link a thumbnail if you use Photobucket or Imageshack.

teejay:

Thanks for the kind words.

There's a number of Michael pics in the champ car set and even a couple in the Atlantic set.

I have only a handful of images of Greg and they haven't been scanned yet. They will get there eventually.

Thanks again,

ms

There is an "auto-resize" add-on for these BB but unfortunately Autosport is way behind in these sort of developments.
