8, Ontario Motor Speedway. In the background
is a barrier against which Swede Savage
crashed heavily. He eventually ended his life at the 1973 Indianapolis 500. High
up in the picture is the infamous Turn One wall (See Diagram).
In between is the paddock, and just out of the frame is Margarita, aiming an 8mm
camera. Later that day I mounted it in the wagon for a few laps. Another time
I used a Super-8 camera in the Vega coupe. It's a real treat to take a lap or
two around this now-defunct raceway. I'm
not sure who took this monochrome picture. How soon we forget...
(A YEAR LATER: I found the original order form, with 35mm contact print
attached. The photo was made by Thomas R. Izor of Montclair, California, on March
25 or 26, 1972. He got two bucks for an 8x10. Thank you, Thomas, I appreciate
