GPDNC (Great photos don't need captions).
image by our friend Al Ivins

It's 2014, and the above photo, taken by the late, great, Al Ivins at Talledega in the early 1970s, if you ask us, (no one ever does) is still the best "winner's circle" photo ever taken in roadracing.

  • The beehive.
  • Roxy Rockwood (announcer).
  • The innocence of Mike Lane Scott Autrey (blonde).
  • How much not winning, um, sucks (far right).
  • The mechanics and fans hanging on the fence.
  • How the trophy is cradled by the winner.
  • The total make-out session passionate kiss and the way she holds his throttle hand, for winning.
