[Snapshots of the 1981 NASCAR Mountain Dew 500]

100.00

About two rolls of film worth of vernacular photography of a day at the races, specifically the 1981 NASCAR Winston Cup Mountain Dew 500 held over the 2.50 mile superspeedway at Pocono Raceway in Long Pond, Pennsylvania. Action shots of cars in motion tend to be quite blurry, though the group provides a broad survey of the track's grounds, participants, race action, period styles, advertising, car designs, etc... in a period color photography perfectly matched to its subject. 

[Auto Racing]. [Snapshots of the 1981 NASCAR Mountain Dew 500]. [Long Pond, Pennsylvania]: [ca. 1981]. 45 color snapshot photographs. Loose. Drugstore prints, each approximately 5" x 3 1/2." A few with some light discolor about edges. Overall group near fine.
