Chasing the water truck

Sept. 7, 1975: Spectators race behind a water truck get cooled off. The truck was controlling dust at Riverside International Raceway.

Temperatures were in the low 90s on race day. Roger Mears won his second straight AC-Delco SCORE World Off-Road Racing championship.

Staff photographer Joe Kennedy was covering the race for the Sports section. He filed this stand-alone hot-weather photo used on Page 3 of the Sept. 8, 1975, Los Angeles Times.
