A classic example of an Offenhauser-powered Watson “roadster” at its peak, this 1962 model was built by A.J. Watson for the Leader Card Racing Team, for which he was also chief mechanic. Driver Ridger Ward started second and led all but nine of the last 75 laps to repeat his “500″ victory of 1959 with the same team and chief mechanic. 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.
