Another vintage classic both picture and Donald’s story. Please continue this series, it is magic.
I agree with Bill. This is a great series. Look at it every day and learn something new.
The sad thing about this picture is that before the year ended both Hoyt and Mc Grath were fatally injured while racing and Bettenhausen met the same fate at Indy 5 or 6 years later.
Amazing on how fast the Borg was filled. This picture is just another example why IMS is the racing capital of the world.
Let me know what you think?
