All Tired Out

CanAm car race 1969
July 27th, 1969 — A member of the Goodyear Racing Division turns a racing slick into a hammock to catch a nap during practice for the Klondike 200 CanAm sports car race in Edmonton while the rest of the crew in the background play cards. I doubt this scene would ever happen in the hyper competitive and expensive racing we have today. Note that the “slicks” of this earlier era actually had tread. Also of note is that there are two big car races this weekend, the Indy 500 and the Formula 1 race in Monaco.
