Although it was fifty-two years ago, it seems like yesterday, when in December 1966, my phone rang. On the other end was Super Stock photo director Leslie Lovett. The first words out of his mouth were, ``Hey Kid, I hear you can shoot a pretty good photo.`` After picking my jaw off the floor I asked why he was calling me. Leslie told how Super Stock had a section in the magazine called ``Match Race Madness.`` It featured high profile funny car match races from all over the USA and that he wanted me to cover the following weekend`s match race between Jim Liberman and Gas Ronda at Fremont, California.
