Not in a Trans-Am race, looks like a '68 at Mutsu Bay Japan, circa 1970.

Jon any ideas ?

I believe this to be the Bob West '69 ? ? as in post #340 above by Jon at Laguna, this one is labelled as Sebring '69, looks like a

banking in the distance, maybe Daytona ?  are those California tags on the street cars ? ? I'm not sure where it is ?

Mike,

More than likely it was taken at Ontario Motor Speedway in 1970.  Daytona doesn't have the infield parking like that.

Thought this was a cool picture of Mark and the Sunoco Camaro hauler.  It was taken at Riverside during the 1968 Mission Bell 250 Trans Am weekend.  Race car driver, engineer and truck driver, LOL!

Found it at the Petersen Digital Archives

Is there a thread here for Camaros in races other than Trans-Am ?

Couldn't find a spot for this unidentified one at the first regional at Road Atlanta, August 1970.

Jon ?

Mike,

That appears to be one of the Bruce Behrens racing team cars that raced in the Trans-Am series in 1969.  Vince Gimondo and Mike Brockman were the drivers.  This would seem to be the Brockman car.  There is a thread for A/Sedan cars here also but this photo is just fine right where you posted it.  Thanks.
