Not much interest or sales on these images, so I thought I'd post some here to see if it would generate some interest. . .

Those are some nice shots. The first one is a good one of T. Hines.

Nice shots.
So they are just dirt sprintcars, with slicks? & they run on both dirt and tarmac?

I'm no expert, but I'm going to guess no.

If you look at the first image you will notice that most teams have two different cars depending if the track is dirt (sideways most of the time) or pavement (not sideways, and not lifting the inside front wheel).

Might be that that team just has the bucks to have several cars per driver, while the smaller teams have to make major adjustments to the cars setup depending on the surface that is raced on.

great shot' there.

whilst we have sprintcar's in australia we only have them race on dirt, would be great to see them on a pavement circuit.

great shot's of TSR truck's and setup, and have seen Coons jnr race in australia, he is massivley talented!!!

i know the USAC Western Sprints are pavement only and USAC CRA are dirt only. i know there is only sanctioning body in northern cal and the USAC Western Midgets and USAC Ford Focus Midgets runs both dirt and paved with the same cars. just a couple modifications. but im not sure about the USAC National Sprints and USAC National Midgets.

Nice set of images. I really like what you did in #3. Of course it would be much better if the stads were full. Nice job.
