The Daytona 24-Hour race was an international endurance race which was not a part of the Trans-Am series. The only
exception to that was in 1968 when the Trans-Am cars were included and the race was actually part of the Trans-Am
schedule that year. This patch is from that 1968 era.

  I have not visited here recently , but am now catching up ! Just noticed the post on Bob Grossmans uniform from months ago. I work with Hinchman Racing Uniforms here in Indy , reviving their vintage suit designs for vintage racing, Gulf Oil, Goodyear ,Firestone , etc. I know Hinchman did suits foe nearly every driver since 1925 .

 Forgot to mention , always look for the checkered flag patch on the shoulder, the Hinchman trademark. By the way , new owners of Gulf Oil in North America ,renewed permission for Hinchman to make Gulf Oil racing uniforms. We will soon have jackets , hats etc. available

My stepdad's scrutineer (tech inspector) license from 1974. We were typically at every race at
Road America and Blackhawk Farms back in the 1970-1974 timeframe.

Some patches and race passes courtesy of Ken Ulrich. Thank you, Ken!

Ken used to work for Todco from '69-'71 and with RWR in 1972.

Seldom seen entry forms for the '67 Las Vegas 350 Trans-Am race and the '68 Mission Bell 250 Trans-Am race.
This is what the car owner filled out to have his car entered in these particular races. Neat bits of racing history.
