BARC - the Binghamton Automobile Racing Club was formed in 1958 by four teenagers from Binghamton, New York. Joe Tierno,
Dave Zych, Steve Vail and Dave Nicholas all had a burning passion for sports cars and road racing. The BARCBOYS hooked up with
Ed Spankey Smith and became his photographers. Sleeping in cars, sleezy hotels or flopping on the ground, they traveled the entire
East Coast SCCA scene from Sebring to San Jovite.
Now some 60 years later the work they did gives an insiders glimpse of how things were. Spectator fencing? Hell, there were no
fences between the race track and the pits at Sebring. Covered, air conditioned garages? BARC towed the factory BRM F1 cars
from the Ford garage in Watkins Glen to the original course because there was no paved paddock much less garages.
