Dear Mr. Consoli,
My father (Robert Blouch aka "Bob" or "Blouchy") worked on the crew for Bobby Gerhart Sr. many years ago. They got together around 1965 and remained close until the time my dad passed away from cancer in 1987. I remained friends with the Gerhart family and followed Bobby Jr. and Billy Gerhart in the ARCA series. I had the good fortune of being with them in victory lane 3 times at Daytona.
I admire your gallery collection of cars, and also wanted to mention that I have many old 35 mm color slides my father took of Bobby Seniors race cars through the years. They are high quality, and I would like to convert them to digital pictures, but do not know the safest and best way to do this, plus to copyright protect them. Can you give me any advice? Best wishes and thanks for sharing your passion.
dklein , I have a resin slotcar that my dad built years ago that is a faithful recreation of Tony Saylor's Kurtis Midget Roadster #29. It is dead on to mr. consoli's picture.
I don't know how I have been on PBase this long and never bumped into you before. But I am glad I did now. Look forward to seeing more of your car photos. Thanks for visiting my galleries. ..Dan
mr consoli,i was wondering if u had any more photos of the #12 midget from latimore fairgrounds from 6/10?

Mr Consoil, You post a picture of Charlie Charot,s # 37 at The big track in Nazareth Pa. As I,ve stated before thats my friend Johnny Hubbard in the U S A C race.
Thank you for sharing images. Are any for sale? I would be interested in any images of the gapco spl., the driver was Sam Sessions. You may have other pics of other drivers since Sam was not only driver. The cars were ran all the way up to the spring of 84. I believe the last driver was Joe Saldana.
Great photos , do you have any of the Bell Lines Trucking car from the early 60"s
Nice to see your great photo collection, and thanks for sharing everything. I especially liked the #5 Bobby G car at the Hershey Auto Club Museum. I helped to design and build that car with my Dad, Bob Blouch and the crew. Many years later I got to be in Victory Lane in Daytona Speedway when Bobby Jr. won the ARCA 200 race, and I watched him win it for the 6th time this year too in 2010!
Lot's of great memories from the racing past. . .
AL.......your pics are simply "the best" Thank you for sharing
Great collection of incredible pics!
Am looking for any images of Benny Rapp's first #14 IMCA sprinter from 1965 till approx 1972. Can you help please? You seem to have been in/around the midwest in that era.
Events he competed in included Little 500 and Tampa Winternationals.

You truly have a gift. I have enjoyed all your pictures immensely. I've seen your racing work all over the place, but now have enjoyed your other venues as well. Keep up the excellent work.

I would just like to thank you Al for all of the wonderful photos, Especially the one at Kokomo Speedway in 2003 that has to be my all time favorite. I still remember it like it was yesterday. Ithink that is the only time that I have rode a wheely through a turn and not been out of control. Thanks for everything.

Thank you for the lovely photos of Cindy and Mike's wedding. We were so happy to see them via Mike's email. Do you have any other photos?? We hope you enjoyed the Wedding Mass and Reception. We loved having you with us.
Mr. Consoli. Can't wait to see your photos of 2006 Indiana Sprint Week! They will surely be the best sprint car photos ever taken, and that is saying a lot as your 2005 and 2004 were the best ever printed. I have made them all so far, and after seeing the action, I can only imagine what your prints will look like. Keep up the excellent work, and see you at the remainder of ISW this week.
AL! GOD BLESS YOU,BABY! YOUR PHOTOS SEND CHILLS UP MY TOOKUS!
Ran across the web site by accident. What an accident. Thank You for all the pics. I would be interested in purchasing photos on a disc (dirt cars)I will look around on the site some more maybe I will find a place to purchase. Thank You again
GREAT pictures! Brings back memories of my Dad, Paul Reed (Morgantown, WV) racing with Gus Linder, Bobbie Adamson, Larry Dickson and many more drivers in the tri-state areas of WV, Pennsylvania and Ohio. Looking forward to many more being posted.
Lynn Reed Feather
Great pictures. Brings this past Sprint Week back so clearly, I feel like it is still July. See you at the next Steak and Shake.
Al, EXCELLENT WORK..........ANY PICTURES OF THE OLD GREG WELD #92 ROADSTER???? 1 HAVE A FRIEND WHO HAS THE CAR AND IS INTERESTED IN RESTORING IT TO IT'S ORGINAL PAINT JOB.
THANKS, BILL WILLIS
My father use to race dirt track and I am wondering if you have any photos from the late 40's to mid 50's. I have 35mm film on some of the races - but it is old and some is damaged. He drove #51 "The Lake Ranger" which later on was changed to #77.
Thank You for your time and consideration!
please give me a call about some photos thank you
I have recently restored the Kurtis Roadster Midget and I am looking to find any picture of it in previous years. I have shown it at Michigan International and will be showing it this weekend at the IRL race at Chicagoland. Any information regarding obtaining pictures would be appreciated.
Al I have been an open wheel race fan for many, many years. I am especially fond of the Silver Crown cars and watched my first Big Car race at Du Quoin State fairgrounds in 1959 when Roger Ward won driving the Leader Card Special. I haven't missed a race at Du Quoin since 1959. Your photography is simply marvelious. Please keep documenting the Silver Crown series because it appears we may be in the final days of those beautyful cars on the big one mile dirt tracks.
Some of the best race pics I seen in a while, great stuff. What kind of camera and lens combos are you using?
Al how do I order a photo
Al, i have been looking at your pictures for years and in my photography class we have to do a research paper on our favorite photographer. And i want to do mine on you and i have looked all over on the internet to try to find your bio and i cant. Can you email me a website that has your personal bio? I dont need just pictures, ive found plenty of those... I need things like how you got started in photography and your inspiration etc. thx alot
I was presently surprised to see a picture of my uncle Tony Saylor's #29 Kurtis Roadster. He has told me of how well Dick Atkins drove the car and now I see a picture on the internet. He doesn't have any picture of the car running so this was really neat to see. Great shot.
Al, Outstanding pix. Glad to have seen them. Hope all is well. Ron K
Al! I need your address to order about a thousand dollars of photos!!lease post it on your website!
Hello, I enjoyed your photos.Thx for sharing. :)
Some of the best photographs I have seen in 55 years of attending auto racing.
I stumbled onto this page today and saw the very first message from Denis at the bottom of the guest list. I'm Eddy Ostwick's grandson :-)
Oh how I wish I could have seen him race.
Love the pics! Great job! I'm a newly reborn NASCAR fan, but a very old fan from the Reading Fairgrounds dirt-track days. I spent a lot of my childhood there - my grandfather (Herman Dietrich) was Head Electrician for the Reading Fair for many years, and a good friend of the Alberts (Sammy's Steaks).
I was hoping to find some pics from the good old days - drivers like "Toby" Tobias, Al Tasnady, Jackie Evans, Bobby Gerhart, Buzzy Reutimann, etc. Nevertheless, I enjoyed your site tremendously!
Thanks for the memories!

PLEASE E-MAIL ME AN ADDRESS I CAN ORDER FROM OR CONTACT ME AT 101 N. PENN ST., PALMYRA, PA. 17078-1837..(717)838-9661....THANKS D.S.
I am a huge Jan Opperman fan. Are any of the photos of him available for purchase? They are great action shots and will go with my collection of Jan's pictures, etc.
Thanks, and great photos!
I am looking for pictures of the Mushroom Specials, 6jr,7jr, 16jr. Also looking for a picture of the Mushroom Special coach raced at Langhorne. Can you help
I saw your pictures -- they're fantastic. I am particularly interested in the picture of Gus Linder and Ray Tilley.
I am doing research for an article on Gus Linder, and I was wondering if you have any more pictures of him?
Would you be interested in contributing any of your fine photos to my article? PLease let me know.
I've been trying to conact you at email address that you my no longer use much. Please contact me via email at email@example.com
Thanks and keep up the great work with the photos!
Great job Al! Incredible photos on every page. You do awesome work. I hope to see you at the tracks again this year!

Western Speedway is in Victoria B.C, Canada....
I love my G1 and i love the pics it takes....
I checked out your pics and they are wonderful..Thanks for sharing
A great sight. The first race I ever attended featured outboards,willys,V8 60 and one HAL
Your site brings back fond memories. The race was here in Windsor and it was a Big Car/Midget card. Feature winners were Mike Salay and Eddy Ostwick. Anyone selling photos as Frank Smith once did?
