This group of auto racing photos were taken at the season ending CART race at Laguna Seca in 1984. Mario Andretti clinched the championship at this race, his last championship before retiring. This race was also notable for the inclusion of "youngsters" Michael Andretti and Al Unser Jr. Also of note was a newcomer named Arie Luyendyk driving in the Super Vee series that day.

Looking back, it's interesting to remember the beginning of press domination by a group of cameramen and reporters working for some infant cable station called ESPN; who could have foreseen the impact that they'd have on motorsports at that time?
