Driver's meeting - Lot's of familiar faces - Russ Thompson, Rick Ferrell, Frankie Swing, Howard Johnson, Jason Kennedy,
Paul Kennedy, David Womack hidden behind Paul holding silver helmet, Scott Johnson in white helmet, Mark Harrison in red helmet, Lynn Blurton between Mark and Big O
Since there are both 2 and 4-cycles in this shot I'd say this is practice
Mark Skaggs holding a pretty wheel in practice
Scott Johnson finding his way around the school parking lot
4-cycle Light on the grid
4-cycle Light ready to go - let's light this candle!
Since Wade lined up 4th on the grid I'm guessing this is the first lap - what a jumbled mess!
This appears to be a lap or two into the race
I know it's been 33 years, but could this be James Buttrey?
Again I'm digging into the memory banks - Doug Jones?
Wade Buttrey leading the field
This one I know - 2-cycle Heavy - David Womack (11), Scott Johnson (77), Frankie Swing (39),
Russ Thompson hidden behind Frankie, Jason Kennedy behind Russ in red, and Mark Skaggs (7)
Scott leading Frankie and Russ
Frankie and Russ still chasing Scott
Sorry, I need help on this one - I'm confused - I see Lori, Wade, Doug - but we've already seen 4-cycle Light. Is this Heavy?
Same class tails away
A young Wade Buttrey
I'm guessing 2-cycle Light - Kennedy, Swing, Skaggs, probably Scott Johnson hidden behind Paul, and Womack still suiting up behind Frankie
Mark Skaggs leading 2-cycle Light
2-cycle Junior on the pace lap - Shaw King (2) and Mark Harrison in the red helmet outside row two
