          Yes that’s me. I read an article in Shutterbug Photo magazine that said if you publish on the web you should do this to protect you photos. One time I did a Goggle search on the Shottgun Express and found that some guy published a personal blog about his watching Richie doing an exibition run at Lime Rock Park for his sponsor Prestone. He had copied my picture from the HAMB website. It was mine because of the © symbol in the photo. Was going to get back to him but I never was able to find it again on Google. Don’t know if Google removed it due to the copyright which was not his. I also have photos that my brother took in the early 1970’s that I am assembling to post. If it is your policy not to copyright I can rescan and post without it.

              Found a photo of the Twin Express at Englishtown NJ at a Sommernationals. Richie was having problems and if I remember he didn’t do to well.

                  These photos were taken about 1972-73 by my brother after his return from VietNam. Note the change in the dragster from my earlier photos from 1968.

                          The photos were all taken by my brother at Dover. Don’t know where he was but he always moved around alot trying to get the best shots.
