Doug Graham, one of our pioneer Stock Car drivers and a well known Sydney identity, drove with all the greats of the day. He once said of Stan Brazier's Buick # 58 " Boy !, when that thing hit you it felt like your eyeballs were going to pop out ! ". Doug was also a great fan of Stan's Grandson Garry Brazier, he said he never tired of watching the mastery of young Garry behind the wheel of a modern Sprintcar.
Doug, who passed away in 2005, drove at Windsor, Westmead and the Royale.
His sons John and Paul have proudly presented us with a collection of photos from Doug's career ....
Thank you John and Paul.
