I’ve Been A Racing Fan Ever Since… 1966. O'Hare Stadium in Schiller Park. Life was never the same after that.
I Love Racing Because… sights, sounds, smells... I've always looked forward to seeing everyone's new cars at the beginning of the season.
The best race I have ever been to was… Too hard to say.
The worst crash I’ve ever seen in person was… Not so much a crash as just a disaster... loose tire got punted into the stands by a car on the track at Rockford and landed in the stands. Very sad.
My biggest ‘racing memory’ is… Walking through the tunnel under the old grandstand at the Milwaukee Mile to the sight of all the old USAC stock car guys working on their cars before the race.
It's always been my goal to be a stock car owner/ driver but startup costs have always been just out of my reach. One day it will be done! Until then I'll have to be satisfied with getting up close with my camera and capturing the best sport in the world.
If anyone is interested, I have an ebay store at http://stores.ebay.com/didierphoto-usa where I have some great photos from USAC, ASA and early NASCAR Busch Series races at the Milwaukee Mile, and feel free to check out more of my racing photos at www.didierphoto.com.
