PEOPLE > Dick Carter & Jessica Helberg
May 15, 2005 - Altamont Raceway Park, Tracy CA
OLDEST & YOUNGEST ACTIVE NASCAR DRIVERS IN HISTORY
That is Dick Carter on the left being interviewed for SportsNet TV show. He is the oldest active NASCAR driver in history. He just turned 80 and still races. He was also the very first promotor of Altamont Raceway in Tracy, California. His son and grandson also race, which makes them the first 3 generation racing team to all be racing at the same time. On the right is the youngest NASCAR driver in history, she is 16 years old Jessica Helberg. I had my camera turned off and stuck in it's bag. Then it dawned on me that this was an historical event I was witnessing, I had *better* photograph it.

During this interview Dick challenged her to a race.

Shortly after taking this photo he and I exchanged a few words and smiles.
