It’s the merry month of May and you know what that means? Indianapolis “500″ time! To mark this great time of year and also to celebrate the 100th anniversary of this great race, I’m going to share with you some pictures I took on my visit to the Hall of Fame Museum at the speedway. They have a great display going on at this time called “THE ULTIMATE INDIANAPOLIS 500 WINNING COLLECTION". There are 67 Indy cars on display which represent 71 Indianapolis 500 victories. I have picked out some of my favorites to post over the next couple of weeks leading up to the race. enjoy!

I'm a second generation photographer, my father, Dick Greenawalt was the official photographer for URC.I started shooting at age 9 ( 1975 ) at Convention Hall in Atlantic City NJ, then at Reading for USAC races. At one time I was the youngest photographer in the east, after meeting Cris Economaki at Atlantic City I began to shoot for National Speed Sport News. I have traveled all over PA, NY, NJ, following sprint cars. I have been one of the track photographers for Williams Grove Speedway in the 1980's, and at that time I also worked for Gater News as there representative at Williams Grove and other tracks : Ascot Speedway-CA, Knoxville-Knoxville Nationals, Oswego Speedway-Classic and regular shows, Dover Downs-Nascar, Syracuse-Usac an Dirt Week, just to name a few. After a 17 year absence due my full time job I am happy to be back on the race trail again! I'm back at Williams Grove, Oswego, Lincoln and many other tracks that I've visited in the past.
