Art Spaulding has been taking pictures of race cars his entire life. Now living in Chico, Art is a wealth of information, and historical data when it comes to all forms of open wheel racing North of Sacramento. We've now known Art for over twenty years, and can safely say that he has the "racing jones" as bad as anyone we've known. If he's not snapping shots, Art is talking racing. He loves sprint cars, and has stood the test of time as a race photographer. With all the quality races held in Chico, Art has amassed an open-wheel photo Library that is destined to be of great significance in tracing the history of racing in Northern California. Art has been kind enough to share some of his photos with us.
Thank Art when you see him at the track.
