Outstanding photos.  Such a neat addition to this site.  Thanks Jon, and Mr. Lathrop for taking and allowing these photos to be seen.

About a third of the way through the race, Jerry Titus was trying to make a pass on Ken Duclos' white Mustang when they came together.
Titus' car spun many times before careening into the dirt bank, doing serious damage. He somehow got it over to the infield out of further
harm's way, but his day was done.

Ed Leslie, the early leader because he started on rain tires, comes in for a pit stop.

Jerry Titus chose to start the race on dry tires and it put him two laps down when he finally switched to wets.

Results, as shown in SCCA "Sports Car" magazine. Even though Craig Fisher is shown in the entry list and results, it was really Gordon Dewar.

I already posted this picture in the "pace cars" thread because it shows the 1967 Camaro convertible pace car heading towards pit entrance but I also think it belongs here.  The fabulous color picture shows the field just before they got the green flag during the 1967 Bryar Trans Am race.  The front row consists of Jerry Titus who started on pole in his #17 light yellow Mustang and Peter Revson who started second in his #15 red Cougar.  Behind them in the second row you can see Milt Minter in his #78 darker yellow Mustang and Ed Leslie in his red #98 Cougar.  I'm not sure who took the photo but it was posted by Derek Sutton at the Historic SCCA Pro Racing Trans-Am Series Fan Group on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=694312197249795&set=o.109038482465812&type=3&theater
