Bio - RacingHistorian

My name is Scott B. Husted and I've been a fan of motorsports for most of my life as I was exposed to autoracing at a very early age. I grew up watching stocks, late models, and NASCAR modifieds at the local ovals in upstate New York such as the Chemung Speedrome and Shangri-La, later Tioga County Speedway and now no longer in existence. I watched some of the great modified drivers such as Richie Evans, Jerry Cook, Maynard Troyer, George Kent, Jimmy Spencer, Geoff and Brett Bodine, and many others.

It wasn’t until Watkins Glen re-opened in the 1980s that I was ever really exposed to road course racing. I attended some SCCA regional and national events and watched my first IMSA and Firestone Firehawk Endurance races. These races formed the foundation of my interest in sports car racing. I began following the SCCA Trans-Am series with names like Pruett, Ribbs, and Dallenbach followed by Dorsey Schrader and Tommy Kendall. I eventually became very interested in historic Trans-Am and started reading about the SCCA Can-Am series of the 60’s and 70’s. Although I love historic sports car racing in general, it is the SCCA Trans-Am and Can-Am series from that era that really capture my passion.

I took up photography as a hobby about a decade ago, and I really enjoy shooting motorsports whenever I'm able to make it to an event.
