Mickey Thompson 1979 Baja 1000

I had the chance to meet and interact with this man during the MTEG days in the late 80's, working as a photographer during all those stadium races. Micky was in a word intense. Always moving, always plotting, always trying to stay in the lead. This also has plenty of other classic footage.
 Take a few minutes and enjoy.


  1. Matt, Thanks for sharing!
    But, I do believe this race was actually in 1981 or 1982, because I'm pretty sure Walker Evans won in 1979...

  2. Right, i was reporting the race for french magazine ...
