Jon, great pictures and info on Continental Divide '68.  This is another one of those races, and racetrack for that matter, that I didn't know much about.  Thanks for filling in some of the blanks!

National Speed Sport News' Sept 18, 1968 issue had this interesting little snippet about Peter Reinhardt's
success in Europe with Mark Donohue's original Camaro from the '67 Trans-Am series.

Smokey Yunick has followed Bunkie Knudsen's earlier move and made the jump to Ford by the end
