Maybe someone who is tech saavy could explain how to get the actual photo on here, not just the link?

When replying to a post you will see a bunch of options above you. The first row will start with [ B ] [ I ] and so on. The next row will have icons. Choose the 3rd icon in from the left hand side. It will be insert image.

When you do so this will come up in your message...
[ img ][ /img ]
Simply place your link in the middle of the 2 brackets like this...
[  img ] http:/www.racingporn.com [ /img ]
Please note that I had to add spaces to the above example as this message thought I was trying to insert an image and would only display a broken link graphic



Hope that helps!

LOL!!!! Jim Cutting has the same haircut!!! and man, someone should take that pic of Dario to the track and give it to Paula, his wife! Im sure she would get a giggle out of it!

Hey Junior, you like that picture do you?  We actually have an ashtray with a similar photo in it!!!! hahaha I am guessing it was one of Bettys items...was looking through some old programs and also noticed mention of Dario missing out on the championship in 1996, nice to see that someone else remembers that other than us..it definitely sucked...I may add some details of this on the thread that ladybugprincess has started on history from 1996-2003....

That would be a good idea as that'd be a story to tell since it was a good part of the history and something that should be remembered. And yah, that's probably (98% sure) one of Betty's.

kootie30, check out canadianracer.com and racepulse.com...

Both of those gentleman I believe are regulars here... and have a few pics of Pinecrest on their sites.

Other than that, maybe someone like Statsman would have a few, after all it closed in 1976... most of us were just new fans then.  ;D

I used to go with my Dad when I was a kid to Pinecrest all the time. I remember how I used to beg him to go sit in the sand pile next door to watch the racing cuz it looked like so much fun. There was a big mountain of sand (I guess for the roads) that people would climb up and park their butts to watch for free.

I also remember, as a kid, that Pinecrest had better stuff to find under the stands than when we went to Sunset..lol.

Those pictures are fantastic they bring back great memories of the good old days. the quality of drivers was second to non the who' who of that era. The thing that blew me away was the crowd comletely jammed but that was reality back then every Saturday night and Sunday of long week-ends greta job Lady Princess!
