"Car #179 is the Albi Special that I
crewed on. I am the guy with the straw hat standing at the rear of
the car facing the camera.
Also, note the mystery Porsche Special,
#121, I only saw that car that one weekend. I also see the Sugarman
Ferrari Testa Rossa, car #48.
I think this is the lineup for Saturday's
Novice race. John Albi was leading, in our car, when he experienced steering
problems. Stan Sugarman won the Saturday novice race, with the Ferrari.
I talked to him, for quite a while, just prior to the start. I remember
the Teakettle, car #314, well."

"I am not sure, but think the picture
was on Saturday just before the start of practice. It was a hot day
and the car overheated in practice. I do not think I attempted to
start the Saturday race because of concern about overheating. We
decided to add shrouding around the radiator to get better cooling airflow
for the race on Sunday where I did start and had the steering problem.
We added the shrouding Saturday night
in my garage in Arcadia. For some reason we removed the steering
wheel and in reattaching it forgot to add the safety nut which created
the steering problem on Sunday. I have not thought about this
for years, but think that is the story."
