You might find some film showing the car in the ESPN Archives.

The car was driven by... OK..... Here goes...... Not a real household name here.


Al Loquasto

D. K. Ulrich, who owned the car, drove it in 1982 for a number of races. The Daytona 500 race was driven by Stan Barrett.

Last time I saw Pentax in Sport over here in Australia was for the Melbourne Cup (The race that stops the nation). Was surprised that it was used for such a decent event.

Even more surprised that Canon and Nikon didn't get it ... probably cos they wanted exhorbinant amounts for the sponsorship deal and Pentax was cheaper.

I would love to See a F1 car with Pentax logos. But still would love a photo of the Pentax Nascar. I could not find a picture anywhere.

I had some color slides that I took of Geoff Brabham's Pentax sponsored Indy Car from 1982 but I have not seen them in many years. I took them at Pocono Raceway at a CART Indy Car race.

I have emailed a nascar historian see what I get. Hopefully something. I have narrowed my search hoping to find something all while trying to sell MRO supplies. Fun fun.
