Snyder Videos of Nazareth, PA has just released "An evening with Buster Warke", a video walk down memory lane as Buster and Paul Weisel narrate ninety of busterís personal racing slides to celebrate Busterís ninety years and his more than seventy years in auto racing.

Buster's 1946 season with IMCA, AAA sprint cars, Tommy Hinnershitz at Indy, championship cars during the 1950ís, USACís trip to Monza, Italy in 1958, plus recollections of Busterís early years in racing, Nutley Velodrome, midgets in Buenos Aires, his thirty-three month, all expense paid tour of North Africa, Sicily Italy, Sardinia, Corsica, France, Germany, and Belgium, and discussions of his many race car restorations highlight this slide review and interview.

"Buster Warke drove Harvey Kreiserís Hal at the Indianapolis Fairgrounds in 1941. Rex Maysí Bowes Seal Fast Offy is in the background."
