Help: 1989 SCCA Saleen racing photos
 
1 Attachment(s)
Hello to all. I worked for Steve Saleen in 1989. I was the Crew Chief for the three Saleen Mustangs and the four Saleen Race Trucks.

I am looking for literature and racing photos of the cars and trucks.

Can anyone help?

Thank you, Jim

Hi Jim,

Are you sure it was 1989? How about 1987 or 1988?

Here are the 1989 race truck photos via Mark Windecker.

Photographers Mark Windecker and Jerry Winker have a nice collection of 1986-1989 racing photos.

Dave, the Mustangs were raced that full year. It is very difficult to find the information on these early races. If you go to www.autocourse.ca you can review all the Escort World Challenge Races through the 80's. Thank you, Jim

Click on resultats/results and scroll down to WORLD CHALLENGE, from there you can click on the year you are looking for. Thank you, Jim

Another spot to look is in the Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia, search under Saleen, it will show more races.

Here are a few of my racing photos in 1989. I was working for Saleen at that time.
