This week's 'Rewind' once again takes on the familiar Picture Parade theme, as Robert Smith has gathered a batch of old photos for your viewing pleasure. For those who care to take a guess on the identity of each one you are welcome to submit your answer on as few or as many as you wish. Like past quizzes, just state the picture number and your answer and use the comments section to submit. If you're not a guesser then I hope you enjoy looking at the 'oldies' anyway.

Today's Picture Parade has a common theme. Each of today's pictures feature a Canadian-born driver racing at a U.S. track. All you need to do is identify the driver, not all the other people in the photo. If you recognize any or all, then feel free to include the other names as readers will appreciate the further identification. If you think you can figure out the track then add that too, but only if you wish. Nearly all have something in the picture that identifies the location.

1 - Oldest first. This photo dates back to about 1958 and the introduction of the very first helmets. Can you identify this gentleman who hopped out of the the sulky to receive his trophy as owner, trainer and driver of this winning horse? (Harness Horse)

2 - Can you name the driver of the No. 4 horse being "urged" a bit for a win on the outside?

3 - No marks given for the location of this photo. Just put a name on the driver of No. 7 if you can. The pilot of No. 3 could be pretty easy to identify but he's not a Canadian.

4 - Pictured above is a fellow who served the sport in a number of capacities over the years; here as a driver. Can you name him correctly? (Abahazy photo collection)

5 - Who is this very well known Canadian-born driver heading back to the paddock after a big win?

6 - This fellow is no stranger to old picture collections. Name the driver if you can. (Harness Horse)

7 - Can you name this gentleman with maple leaf emblems on his driving suit? (Abahazy photo collection)

8 - Guessing the track and date are "off limits" but can you correctly identify the driver?

9 - Can you name this fine gentleman as he heads to victory with No. 1 in this 1971 photo. (Abahazzy photo collection)

10 - Let's end it on a "super easy" note. This guy's identification should be no problem.

Quote For The Week: In a Sports Illustrated profile in 1990, Herve Filion elaborated on his work ethic, saying "you show me an eight-hour man and I’ll show you someone just passing through life, surviving, that’s all."
