43_PETTY3    STOCK CAR RACING IN THE 1970s      image004

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                   

My name is Al Morris. From 1972-1977, I photographed racecar drivers all over So. Calif. I photographed at Riverside Raceway and Ontario Raceway, Ascot Park, Speedway 605, El Cajon Speedway, Corona Raceway, Saugus Speedway, Orange Show and Bakersfield Speedways. I also have some photos from Medford Speedway (Posse Grounds) in Medford, Oregon where I was track photographer in the early 1970s.

 

I have photographs of NASCAR drivers, sprints, midgets, open competition, sportsman, street stocks, figure 8, limited stocks, and most every other type driver on those tracks. I have 90% of the cars and drivers of that time period in So. Calif. My negatives were in storage until a few years ago. Most of these negatives are 40+ years old. These prints will not be retouched. You will be looking at a piece of racing history. Below, I have listed approximately 50% of the drivers I have photographed. I am unable to identify the others as of yet.  If you don’t see YOUR DRIVERS name, it doesn't mean I don't have his photograph.....    It just means YOU MIGHT HAVE TO LOCATE IT AND IDENTIFY HIM         If you wish to see a drivers picture, CLICK on the DRIVERS NAME in COLORED PRINT to go to his picture.

 

I WILL MAKE ERRORS... IF YOU FIND THEM, SEND ME AN EMAIL WITH THE CORRECTIONS... I WILL FIX IT WHEN I CAN. I WELCOME ANY HELP YOU CAN PROVIDE IN IDENTIFYING THESE DRIVERS.

To contact me, my email address is “THE_FALCON_ _ @MSN.COM

 

Here is a fun TRIVIA QUESTION: What two drivers in NASCAR HISTORY have the SAME LAST NAME but, ARE NOT RELATED.  These 2 drivers drove the SAME CAR NUMBER in NASCAR but, 30 years apart?  (HINT... neither were a flash)  CLICK HERE FOR THE ANSWER. (look near bottom of page)
