Whitey Suttles Heads For Blackwell's Lagoon At Greenville Pickens

I shot this photo back in the 1980's at Greenville Pickens Speedway. Whitey Suttles' car left the asphalt racing surface between turns one and two and dug up dirt and grass as he avoided a light pole and a big ol' ditch. Veteran announcer Max Mace used to call that ditch "Blackwell's Lagoon." Today an inside concrete retaining wall prevents cars from such scenes. It should also be noted, Whitey Suttles is still racing (2011) and is in his 70's. Suttles races at Anderson Motor Speedway in Anderson, SC. Photo By Roger Jewell
