edit: #17 could also be Talladega Superspeedway since Talladega was listed as a location. Hubby was born and raised there so I hope to see pics he can help with.

And me a RaceCar fanatic didn't even think of this !!
Fantastic supsandalee  |#'
edited to add my Boyfriend says Abolutely !! Talledaga is such a huge track like Pocono that they need the tunnels to get the peeps out as well as tunnels that run under ground for pedestrians !!

Yep, you've nailed #5 (and probably #2 as well). The cowboy and the cowgirl twirling the lariat (# 14 #15) might be Jackson Hole, but there's not enough data in the picture: could be anywhere, really.

Good job on Talledega Supsandalee.

From Puddin's link I found a raceway map that has the tunnels on it.

Right Slowhatch because almost every state such as Utah /Arizona/Montana /Wyoming etc have some sort of cowboy / horseriding type location .
I know the pictures that I posted don't match but in the one with the horses you could see the white peaks in the background . Also GMan nailed Jackson Hole Wyoming way back when as a possable location .. no idea how he could have known :gman:

Just wanted to confirm Pedaler's good work on Bell Rock (south of Sedona, north of Oak Creek)
 
the vidcap

a similar perspective (looking more northeast)

my crude attempts at Google Earth. It all matches, including the background hills and Hwy 179.
I have a hunch the the ruins #21 are somewhere south of Sedona, but I still haven't found them yet.

If that is the Talledega Motor Speedway, wouldn't that be cruel reminder for the Weavers?

I was wondering about that too Gman but if you think about it .I wonder if all the Weavers were race fans ? maybe they have been to Talladega before and it just maybe that they have an advantage as to where to go?  Also fwiw Talladaga is this Sunday .. can't wait , one of my fave tracks !!

edited to add , the Weaver dad was from Alabama
At least one close friend of the family knows she'll be watching. Ellen Kaslewicz, a friend from Roy Weaver's Alabama high school, thinks that he would have gotten a kick out of seeing his family in the race. link

Yeh, but it would be better if they took those restrictor plates off and let the cars run full out!!

By the way that sure looks like a match for the Tetons and Jackson Hole. Notice the three similar peaks.

Puddin,  That bridge didn't match the one in the New Orleans riverboat vid cap?  It appears to be very similar in design and construction.

  I agree.  The only place in the United States where you will see so many rock capped mountains is the Grand Tetons National Park.  The body of water in front of the mountains is probably Jenny Lake but could be Jackson Lake.

I thought someone discounted that ? but it makes sense to me .

OK nevemind  :t-up:

I verified the Natchez riverboat and the bridge early on in this thread and located similar balloons in Utah.

I agree that it looks a lot like the crescent city connection bridge.

But supsandalee knocked that down on page 1:

#10 may look like New Orleans but it is not. I've viewed the New Orleans skyline many times from the westbank and the bridge isn't right and there is another bridge in the picture that doesn't exist in N.O.
Here's the map, there's no other bridge nearby:

(how do you save a google map without all the other stuff on the page?)

It's not the Huey Long bridge in NOLA either.

I think we have to keep hunting.

We need a skyline to go against.

Muchas Gracias Puddin.   :thankyou:

I think I will be able to make a lot of use of that feature.

About the bridge, the photo you have seems to be from the area where the other two bridges are in that town.
I'm not convinced we have the race going to Ciincin either.  There are so many old bridges like this.  Any city with a river more that 100 feet wide could have it.

What I was hunting for is that "doublewide" look that it has. Like two bridges made side-by-side in contact.


Help!   I tried the attachment thing but I get nothing.  How do I tell it that I have an image?

Thanks Puddin, it was the "can't preview" that was hanging me up.  I thought I had done it wrong.

You browse and look for the file that your picture is saved in  . I usually use recent and rename my picture that I saved as 1 2 3 .. etc . You can't preview the attachment just hope for the best .
And for whatever reason I don't mind hosting the picture if you all link me  :yaya:
