I don't really consider this a "favorite" racing picture, but it sure was amazing to see it happen! From the 1999 Le Mans 24 hour...this photo was actually from the 'pre-race' warm-up...as most of you know this happened again DURING the race!

Here's a couple of mine. The one on the left is a Formula 5000 race at Laguna Seca; note the sign in the upper left corner.

Im loving this,amazing pics Love the flying Alfa and the Merc I remember watching that incident on TV ,cant imagine what the driver would be thinking at that moment :eek::p ...
I can tell you exactly what he was thinking: "This is going to hurt!"

I know the only really bad shunt I had, that is exactly what came out of my mouth. I saw Lewis Hamilton interviewed on Top Gear once and he was asked a question something like "what do you think when you see you are going to crash" and he said "This is going to hurt!" I think it is probably universal.

This thread is a great idea. I will look through my pictures and see what I have.

Very nice, Don. Love the one with Mario leaning on the wet tire and the two Als.

Thanks Lance. I showed the "Two Als" to Junior a couple of years ago, he just shook his head, took a drag off his Marlboro and muttered something like, "That was a loooong time ago."

LOL! That's the reaction that I had, too. I can remember when he made his rookie run at Indy. (Yes, I AM that old) :)
