  • 6/22/78 Actors Dick Smothers and Chevy Chase in Mint 400 celebrity race SILVERBIRD RACEWAY AT LAS VEGAS SPEEDROME Actors Dick Smothers and Chevy Chase paragraph>In early 1978, Walker Evans was approached by American Motors to prepare a fleet of Jeeps CJ-7s for a series of celebrity races to be run in conjunction with Mickey Thompson and Sal Fish of SCORE International. The events included a specially created short-course event at the Silverbird Raceway at the Las Vegas Speedrome—which also served as the site for the start of the fabled Mint 400 race—followed by a second race in August's highly popular SCORE Off-Road World Championship at Riverside International Raceway Redd Foxx, and comedian Chevy Chase, who refused to drive upon his arrival at the track. Captured by Jim Ober, this image was taken immediately after Foxx flipped his Jeep on its side. Joined by off-road veteran J.M. Bragg, Ober remembers Foxx screaming out, "Let's go, that thing is going to blow up!" in his best Fred Sanford voice. Brian Jones Photographer, News Bureau | Public Affairs
