"Accoutrements", Part Trois

Self explanatory

Makes me think of Bob Tullius and Group 44, but he wasn't here.

Photo by Ron Lathrop

Bruce Jennings occasionally drove with Jim Hall on the Chaparral team so this stuff is most likely his.

Photo by Ron Lathrop

Two groups of 4 each. Alfa lug nuts?

Neat old Wards Riverside Marine battery. That Pepsi cup takes me back...

Some used and abused Goodyears.

Goodyear rain tires mounted and ready in case the weather changes.

Taped together lug nuts. I hope somebody doesn't need those in a hurry.

Photo by Ron Lathrop

Oh boy! Another wagon!

Photo by Ron Lathrop

Apparently somebody couldn't afford to spring for the racing motor oil.

Photo by Ron Lathrop

Ford, of course, paid zero attention to the AMA's racing ban and had an overt presence at the track. I sure wish GM acted the same way back then.

Judy Stropus (seated at table) and others involved with Penske's timing & scoring. Bucknum has moved up to 2nd place!

Probably a good vantage point for viewing the race.

If you don't have a bus, improvise!

Ron Hunter's Javelin and Levester Lewis' Camaro running down the main straight show their battle scars.

Photo by Ron Lathrop

Levester Lewis brings his Camaro into the pits on lap 41 with a blown transmission. His day is done.

Photo by Ron Lathrop

Trouble for Mark Donohue on lap 46. His left front wheel bearing is toast and needs to be replaced.

Photo by Ron Lathrop

I guess these guys are somehow involved in that. The guy with the gray sideburns looks like he may be racer Bob Johnson,
from Columbus, Ohio. Bob did occasionally drive for Roger Penske.

Photo by Ron Lathrop

Front brake pad does not have the usual L-shaped cross section seen on heavy-duty J56 replacement part.

Photo by Ron Lathrop

Topping off the tank. The 8-minute stop for repair moves Donohue back to 21st place.

A look over at two cars coming out of The Carousel and approaching turn 15.

Fred Baker's Porsche and Don Yenko's Camaro in The Carousel (turn 14).

Ted Roberts' Javelin and one of the Hol-Arc Firebirds.

Photo by Ron Lathrop

Not sure what those two people are doing there.

Photo by Ron Lathrop

Interesting that there is no barrier between the track and the water but that's just how things were "safety-wise" back then.

Great pics, James. Thanks for posting. Is this the show where Wayne Guinn had ex-racer and GM engineer Jerry Thompson come out as part of a crossram seminar?

Interesting view from turn 12 on "The Chute" shows Jerry Titus' Firebird running without a rear spoiler. All
the other Firebirds in the race were running with rear spoilers so this must have been voluntary on Titus' part.

Nice shot of Jim Harrell's independent Mustang.

Dick Lang's Camaro goes by Gary Wright's Porsche.

Photo by Ron Lathrop

Horst Kwech looking to get by on the inside of Wilbur Pickett's Porsche. Horst was in the pits for 6 laps getting a new
rear axle so he has a lot of ground to make up.

Photo by Ron Lathrop

Parnelli's pit stop has moved him back a few spots in the standings but others will have to pit also.

Photo by Ron Lathrop

Don Yenko's Camaro shows signs of damage from a collision with John Martin. His suspension and steering are affected.

Ron Bucknum is using a fuel conservation strategy to quietly move himself up in the standings as the race progresses.
