[Georgia Stock Car Photographs]

50.00

A compelling series of mid-1970's color prints of a suburban-Atlanta dirt-track stock car racer: Larry "Smitty" Smith and his Campbell Truck Leasing-sponsored #21. The modified mid-1960's coupe, possibly a 1965 or 1966 Ford Galaxie, is shown in 4 professionally done 8" x 10" prints (2 in front of American Automotive in Forest Park, GA ; 2 at Dixie Speedway, a 3/8 mile dirt oval in Woodstock, GA) and 4 vernacular color Polaroids, including one of the car just before its racing paint job and lettering was applied. 3 additional prints of another, contemporary stock car and 1 of the infield of the 1975 Daytona Firecracker 400 round out the group. 

A clear and uncommon series of photographs of local Georgia dirt track racing in the 1970's.
