Gary's Favorite Photos from 2015!

Daugherty modified track champion Tim Reynolds races inside of  Mark Grosvenor during a feature race in October.

Beautiful unscathed IMOD of Larry Rearden at Shadyhill Speedway in May!  They don't look this good in September though...!

Tracy will be a NASCAR Truck team competition director this year!

ARCA Midwest late models lined up and ready to go Memorial Day Weekend at Illiana Motor Speedway.

Andrew Morrissey took the double checkers at Illiana on this beautiful Sunday afternoon.  For his victory he won a...

Tommy Gun trophy!  (Didn't like the way he was lookin' at me with it...!)

Plymouth Speedway modified champ Jamie Lomax leads NASCAR driver Justin Allgaier during feature action at Plymouth.
Lomax gave a lesson or two this evening to Mr. Allgaier!

Now you know how those winged sprint car drivers balance themselves on their wings after winning a feature race!

Jared also won the NRA Championship in 2015.

Let's see, 2 cars, 4 wheels in the air.  That means only 4 are on the dirt at Gas City in May!

Twilight at Plymouth and the full moon's rising!  Gonna be exciting!

One thing the Plymouth crew provides is therapeutic mud baths for the 600 Mini Sprints...!

Got my victory lane shot and sprinted to my car in between said raindrops!!

and also winning a lot of other sprint car races!

Six-wide, count them, almost worked at Kokomo!

My son Russ sporting the RaceStar colors at Daugherty Speedway.  Hopefully, he can join me more this year to shoot!

The famous "Plymouth pile-up" at Plymouth Speedway with the Mini Sprints. Of course, it has to be one of my top favorites!

Local racing lost a well liked modified driver to cancer in January.  John Meyer Jr. will be missed but never forgotten.
Rest in peace John.

And I can't forget the "RaceStar RaceKids" who smiled for the camera during the 2015 race season!
We are looking at current little race fans and maybe some future drivers....?
