Anyone know what happened to Pat? she was the photographer from CC Speedway back in the 70s and early 80s, she would run across the infield and snap a photo of race winner at the backstretch wall and run back to start/finishline to take another photo, that woman had to be in good shape to do that, she had 1000s of photos of cars and would go to the races at TWS and take photos of the local cars there, id like to get a hold of her to see if she has any of the photos or copies, my mom would always order photos of my dads cars and she had more than my mom could afford to get at that time

If this is the same Pat Johnson I am thinking about she also lettered race cars. She would hand paint the numbers and sponsers on the car. As a teenager I remember watching her paint my dads race cars. She did some racing also and was a pretty good driver. I have not seen her in years.

I think your right, Dad was already racing super stocks. I bet if we scrolled through some the old CC pics on this forum she has painted many of them. I seem to remember she rolled that pinto over one time.

dont think she rolled it ..

Pat lettered all of my dad's cars until I got Andrews in 96. She did a great job. Yes, she took her time but the wait was worth it. She is one of the nicest people you will ever meet. Her whole family as a matter of fact. I think since her dad passed they haven't been out to the track. He loved watching the races. One of my biggest supporters. I sure miss seeing them out there.
