Marlboro 300 Trans-Am coverage from SCCA's Sports Car magazine. (Jon Mello Collection)
This race was unusual in the fact that the under-2 liter cars ran a separate 300 mile race on Saturday
while the over-2 liter cars ran in their own separate race on Sunday. Previous races had both classes
running together. Many drivers ran in both races as co-drivers to each car's regular driver. It was not
until the 1970 season that SCCA permanently removed the U-2 cars from running with the O-2s.

Here is some cool color home movie footage of the over 2 liter Trans Am race that took place at Marlboro Speedway, Upper Marlboro, Maryland on August 12, 1967: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0h9OLNQDxwk&feature=related

Wonderful Marlboro 300 Trans-Am photos, courtesy of Don Struke. This was the first victory
for a Camaro in the Trans-Am series and the first Penske/Donohue victory in that series as well.

Nice pics..  Smiley     Seeing the refueling photo reminded me of being 'refuel man' in a friend's pit crew at a couple of IMSA races at Road Atlanta... Smiley   I can't recall how much fuel one of those cans held (8 gal?) but they was pretty heavy ...  especially after pulling two of them full in a little red wagon from the fueling station.. Smiley

11   U.S. Gallons - same as NASCAR.  You are right - they were heavy - needed a strong guy to handle them.

Thanks Bob.. Smiley

I bet I couldn't handle one of those cans today, certainly not the way I could 35-40 yrs ago.. Smiley

Marlboro 300 photos from Andrew Keller. Notice the fit of the hood which is fully closed. This is the only salvageable piece
from the lightweight front sheetmetal (besides the cowl panel) that was so heavily damaged at Bryar the week before.
