One thing we don't have, though, is photos for sale.
Most the photos on this site are unpublished, and are the copyrighted property of the individual photographers.

Check the Links page for photographers, and their contact information...

If there's something you don't see here, and you've got pictures of it,
either scan 'em and send 'em in, or e-mail me and we'll work out something.

But these pages are getting out of control, and it might load a little slow. Sorry.

If you've got any info, please e-mail me. pits4@mysterion.net

We continue adding photos and info as they come in, and as we find it. Again, we're striving to identify as much about these photos as we can, such as the tracks, the drivers, the dates, the photographers, and any clever anecdotes about the particular racers. If you've got pictures and/or information, hey, don't be shy. Send it on over.

And try out the Search feature!
Just type in what you're looking for (one or two words, spelling counts) and a list of pages should pop up!

Ex-Mazmanian Cuda, now sponsored by Vel's Parnelli Jones. Not sure if Danny Ongais shoed this ride, as he did their Mustang.
