Could this color photo be an Clay Earles' funny photo?

#1. First thing,  I noticed was the "MARTINSVILLE SPEEDWAY" Scoreboard photo has POS 1-3 is CAR #26; POS 4 is CAR #61; POS 5 is CAR #06; LAP 150.

#2. In the above color photo of (11) race driver's looking silly  and laughing photo with Clay Earles in it.

In this Color photo, Driver's wearing caps was Dave Marcia(Goodyear), David Pearson(Purolator), Cale Yarborough(Holly Farms), Richard Petty(STP), Benny Parsons(Goodyear), Darrell Waltrip(STP), Buddy Baker(yellow color fishing hat).

#3. In hard cover book title: "From Dust To Glory"

On page 70, there's an serious driver's looking B&W reshoot photo of these (11) race drivers without Clay Earles in it.

Close-up shot of MARTINSVILLE SPEEDWAY billboard(-CAR #/POS/LAP), and drivers(head/feet).

In this B&W photo, Only driver's wearing caps was Dave Marcia(Goodyear), David Pearson(Purolator), Cale Yarborough(Holly Farms).
