Trophy girls!
 
Here's a fun thread that's dedicated to just the Trophy Girl, who always had to kiss the whiskered winner and smile whether she liked it or not.

It was once tradition that the daring race car driver not only win the trophy for his gallant efforts, but win the girl as well. Though the times have changed, here's a salute to these brave women of the past. You might even spot a famous driver or two, but who's looking at them?

Here's a couple.

That's my little sister, Jenni, as trophy girl for a RMMRA show at Colorado National Speedway, July 13, 1981. Wayne Henshaw long time RMMRA flagman, Jenni, and Rod Ullery. Rod won the trophy dash in Charley Fletchers neat Schleiger built VW #8.

Same night, Roberts won the feature.

The photo of J.C. Agajanian ogling the trophy girl brought to mind my all-time favorite trophy girl photo. This one was taken during driver introductions for the Night Before the 500 midget race at IRP in 1988, I believe. I was introducing the drivers with a microphone on the track and the situation cracked me up so that I had to shut off the mike. The photographer was the late Jack Gladbach. I think it is sufficient to just say Warren Mockler's mind was NOT on shaking hands with Linda Vaughn...
