    Info needed about Peru race

    I have this photo of race from Puno to Cuzco Peru with American made stock car and cannot find any information anywhere on this race. If anyone is very computer or research literate I would like to know the story and history of this race. I have a stack of photos from this race with all American made cars, I'm sure there has to be a couple Gringos that raced there. Anything is appreciated.

    I wish it were that easy....I've been looking for some clue to any info. on this race and can't find it anywhere. I'll post the other photos, there's no way that the cars were all Peruvians (is that a word?), the cars look good, there has to be a few well known American drivers that ran in that race. Besides, according to a Honduran friend the sign "could" read "Welcome brave American drivers". But the "Daring crack drivers" don't mean they were smoking crack...maybe in todays world.

    was that the race that some NASCAR drivers drove in. I think Marvin Punch was in race down there somewhere.
