Photographer Allen Kuhn recognized HIMSELF in this photo.
From Allen:

"WOW!   I've finally found a picture of me! In Gordon Glyer #3 of the Examiner GP the guy standing up right over the "X" has to be me. It lines up with my angle of the start of the race. Robitschek must have been standing right next to Bob Tronolone. Robitschek was a good  photographer. I wonder what happened to him and his negs?"
