Notice the helicopter just off the track. Horst Kwech's Mustang went off the track on lap 8 at 120mph in the wet and went through the
fence injuring 12 people, one fatally. The helicopter was taking the most seriously injured man to the hospital but he did not survive.

After 4 days of rain, this gives you an idea of how soggy the ground was.

Map of the road race course.

Wolverine Trans-Am program

Ron was not at the S/F line at the start of the race but here is a photo from Competition Press right after the green flag fell. Among the
front runners, Jones, Follmer and Kwech in the Boss Mustangs were on dry tires. Rain drops started falling as soon the flag was waved.

Photo by Jack Brady

First lap, here they come. Ron is standing between flag stations 10 & 11. The cars are turning to their left where the people are at the guard rail.

Goodyear rain tire for the Tony Adamowicz Porsche. Race reports say Firestone rain tires performed better in the wet than the Goodyears.

Goodyear dry comes off and a Firestone wet goes on.

Thanks, Chad. I've got many more to post but am waiting for about 25 more (on top of those) to show up from Ron before posting them all.

John Martin, driver of the #4 Javelin. John did a lot of the testing for the Javelin team during the '68 season.
He was promoted to full-time driver when George Follmer and Peter Revson left the team at the end of '68.

Photo by Ron Lathrop

John watches an Alfa Romeo go by during Sunday morning practice. The #3 and #4 factory team Javelins were
late to the track and missed qualifying on Saturday. They both started the race at the very back of the grid. Not
a good way to start the season and, in fact, it was an early sign of how the season was going to go for them.
