[Auto Racing] [NASCAR]

N.p. N.p., 1965. Archive of 40 vernacular photographs taken at the NASCAR World 600 race on May 23, 1965 at the Charlotte Motor Speedway in Concord, NC. Eight of the photographs with manuscript annotations on the verso, identifying the date and location, as well as drivers pictured.

The photographs are primarily taken at track level, and feature shots of the pit, track, and car storage areas, indicating that the photographer was likely involved as more than a spectator, as either a member of a crew, a race official, or member of the press. A close up look at stock car racing, from a time when it was very much still a regional sport.

3.5 x 3.5 inches. Very Good plus overall.
