Hi Desert Dave - That race photo was taken by John Owens of Cambridge, MA. He's taken a lot of shots of my boys over the years. He normally shoots products for ad companies but likes motor sports as well. He was a TZ 250 racer back in the day. That particular image was taken at Loudon's turn 9 with a remote camera planted downslope of the apex. The riders are about to flip over for a right turn at the bottom of a hill.
It's my fave so I share it a lot.
This is another one I am fond of. Virginia International the very first race for motorcycles after a really nice makeover. 2001 maybe? Formula USA event. I think it's turn 3. He was fast in practice so I hired a photographer. The guy asked, "what's his number?". I said; "it's #30, but don't worry you won't miss him. He'll be in front." A rare moment of bravado, but it turned out.
I recognize Chris Siglin and Brian Parriott in your AFM images. I am a big Parriott fan when he surfaces. Not too often these days.
