During the early years of Gilchrist's photographic career (1968 thru 1976) he photographed race cars professionally, working mostly in Ohio (Thompson Drag Raceway, Dragway 42, Norwalk, Quaker City, Lorain County Speedway, Sandusky Speedway, Cloverleaf Speedway, Etc.). During this period he made many thousands of black & white negatives which are still in perfect condition. These images are of famous and not so famous racing personalities, drag racing cars, sprint cars, late models, flat track bikes, hill climbers, and all kinds of off-roaders. Charles was published constantly and won several awards for this work but moved on to become a commercial studio and Fashion/Beauty Photographer.

And now (over 35 years later) we are presenting these terrific racing collectibles to the world. This site will be constantly updated as there are numerous outstanding racing related images in the Gilchrist negative files. It is a small piece of Drag Racing history. If you feel you have additional information regarding any of the cars, drivers, teams, etc., please email us and we will add your contribution to these histories.

Gilchrist Returns To Thompson

And so, appropriately, Gilchrist also returned to his home track to join the celebration and to once more put his photographic eye on Gassers. This gallery features the best of this new black and white work. Check it out Gilchrist fans, he's better than ever!
