Default Race Pics Sebring Regional 6-7-09

My buddy Whitey takes some great SCCA race pictures almost every weekend. He post them on picasa for racers to copy those of their cars. I have been drooling over some of the cars in his files. On a couple of ocassions I accompanied him and I can tell you it isn't easy. Kudos to WhiteyPhoto and here are a few from the Sebring Regional 6-7-09.

Yup...I know how you feel Gene. On one of my trips to Sebring I spent more time in the pit taking detail pics and asking questions. Most of the racer/owners are guys just like us following their dream. They may have more support and resources, but mostly regular guys. Somewhere I have many detail photos of the 114 car. When I spoke with the driver/owner he had just replaced a blown engine and was dialing it in. That same day there was a blue 68 roadster racing that raced its entire life. At one time it held some record on Pikes Peak. It was very interesting uncovering some history on the cars.

I have pictures of the 114 car also, I'm surprised it can run with the cage it has. It's for sale also, I think hes asking 35k

Hey-nice pics Yellow! Are you located in the Sebring area? I'm just curious, I live in the Cocoa, FL area and don't make the drive often.
