My name is Andy Hartwell (aka: ash) . I write a column called "Through The Esses" which, for many years, appeared on TheRaceSite.com and then found a home at ashautomobilia.com. I have been a photographer and sportscar racing journalist for a good number of years now, having had my work published in All-Race, Octane, Automobile, and Race News magazines. My work has also appeared in race programs, books, magazines and print ads.
I focus my writing efforts primarily on the people 'who make the cars go", driving or working in series from the old Can-Am and USRRC days to the modern combatants in Grand-Am, ALMS, SPEED World Challenge, KONI Challenge and Vintage Racing. I also serve as the Newsletter Editor for the American Auto Racing Writers and Broadcasters Association (AARWBA) and I am the owner and Senior Editor of ashautomobilia.com.
I encourage you to view the photos here and to visit our main site: http://www.ashautomobilia.com
