Pit stop

June 20th, 1971 — These pictures of a George Follmer pit stop which I recently discovered in my files shows why it was so much fun in the old days to photograph motor racing. There I was taking pictures from the middle of pit lane during a Trans Am car race at Edmonton International Speedway and considering there was a fire in the pits on the previous lap — you can see the mess being cleaned up in the background of of the picture below — it was probably the most dangerous place on the track but the pictures were worth it. Up close with a wide angle lens not a telephoto; unobtainable today. That’s car owner Bud Moore sticking his head inside Follmer’s car.
